Marsh kept meticulous records, indicating that he created this painting between September 5-24, 1934.
Movie theaters are places where people from different walks of life can cross paths. Marsh's painting highlights this by presenting a working-class woman, who grasps a satchel of files from her office job, standing near a wealthier woman adorned in furs.
