Roll call for employees of Stratford's new Broadway Super Cinema. From usher to sweet seller to projectionist and manager, everybody lines up in full uniform. It's hard to imagine today just how many people were employed in a super cinema. Note the orchestra performing for the camera outdoors too - if only we could hear them!
