In the '50s and '60s whenever an Elvis movie was shown here in Rotterdam, above the entrance of the theatre a large picture or drawing was shown, showing the movie that was shown that week.
I have been looking for years and years for a picture of such a drawing and finally found this one on the internet.
It is the Luxor Theatre in Rotterdam, which at the time was also used as a cinema, while these days it is used for (musical) shows.

(the sign says "Elvis at his best" and does not name the movie. My guess is it's "It happened at the world's fair")

If I remember well there were Fanclub meetings in this theatre too; in the early 80's Charly Hodge (with a band) performed there once at a fanclubmeeeting.

I was there but do not remember much about the fanclubmeeting.
Only that when asked, Charlie proclaimed he nor Elvis were gay.
