Notes: Checklist may be complete. Unnumbered. On the bottom left of the front of these cards is a small red mark with the words "Renwick Pride, Pty. Ltd."

These were issued by many different movie theatres. Here is a list of theatres seen on the backs of these cards (more are possible):

The cities listed are all suburbs in the inner north of Melbourne, Australia.

The backs mention upcoming films that will be showing at the theater and the dates they will be shown.

Date info: Many of the movies mentioned on the backs were released in 1926. Monday, November 8 was mentioned on one of the cards. I checked a 1926 calendar, and November 8 did fall on a Monday that year. So, I am fairly certain these cards were issued in 1926.

Thanks to Eric Panther for help with this checklist.
