Garbo reigned supreme at the Empire in the the 1930’s and for this film Queen Christina which was shown at the Empire in 1934 for four weeks from 16th February - 16th March there were 233,688 admissions. Much later when a student in 1965 the old Ritz next door used to have Garbo Seasons, remember a group of us used to go to each of the six films screened. I think they changed every two weeks and you had to queue to get in, admission around 3/- (30p). It was the first time I ever heard of Garbo. During the last week of the Season asked the doorman if it would be possible to have a poster he said come next week when the Season finishes and will save one and still have it, the poster is a montage of Garbo from her various films shown during that season.
