The Passion Pit, another name for the drive-in movie, is the title of this poster from Janet Kruskamp, one of her series of vintage movie posters. This whimsical version of the drive-in marquee features a starry sky, perfect night for a drive-in movie. The sign curves the red text THE PASSION PIT across the top and over the big red heart. Directly under is the black block text DRIVE-IN THEATER, followed underneath with smaller letters reading NOW SHOWING. Drive-in theaters, often used as a passion pit, were once the only place to go to be alone with your date. Drive-in theater management often abetted this behavior by running movies of laughable quality, knowing full well that no one came to actually see the movie. With a multitude of other entertainment choices now, the weathered look of this poster sadly reflects the decaying state of most of the remaining drive-in theaters.

The Director, one of the vintage movie poster collection by artist Janet Kruskamp. Painted with a dark rich red background, this tribute to the vision behind Hollywood cinema is both simple and powerful. The director's chair with DIRECTOR across the back holds only the worn pith helmet of the classic Hollywood director. Often working with military precision, some of the early directors acted like field marshals, commanding respect and immediate action. Some of these directors have themselves been the subject of the cinema, showing up in cameo roles or portrayed in thinly veiled characters.

Scene 1, Take 2 is a wonderful addition to Janet Kruskamp's series of vintage movie posters. The delightfully busy poster represents the hectic life of the director, an open script sitting on the seat of the high director's folding chair, a white baseball cap hanging on the top post partially obscuring the word DIRECTOR across the canvas back of the black chair.

The gray weathered background incoroprates the title SCENE 1 and TAKE 2 balance right and lower left. Scene 1, Take 2 represents the very beginning of the movie process, only the second take of the movie on the first day of shooting.
