Cinema advertising slides

Three of these coloured glass slides advertise films, one at the Grand Opera House. Another slide is a request for patrons to leave by the nearest exit. The remaining two slides advertise forthcoming recitals by the violinist Jan Kubelik (1880-1940), and the tenor Joseph Hislop (1884-1977), whose concert was to be at the Theatre Royal. Both these slides include portrait photographs of the performers.
