Now Playing tells a highly visual story of the movie posters painted by artists who were commissioned by theater owners in their communities. Unencumbered by having actually seen the films they were promoting, these artists were free to improvise, which resulted in dramatically different renderings for the same film. Slide, Powell and Berthelsen tell the story of one-of-a-kind movie-poster art that drew the public into theaters, and illustrate it with posters that have been lost to the public eye until now.
