BACKSTORY: Frank G Cairo, Owner of Cairo Home Movies
Frank Cairo moved from the Bronx, New York to Kenosha, WI in 1943. The store was open until 1997 with his passing. In addition to cameras, Frank loved movies and movie stars. He began collecting 8, 16 and 35mm films, some in Italian. Eventually, Cairo Home Movies became the largest private and rental film collection in Wisconsin. In summers, there were free outdoor movie nights for neighborhood kids. Not satisfied with only the movies, he eventually started collecting movie posters, catalogs and books. This collection includes Fox Warner Home Video posters and promotion materials. Look for the sale of many of these items in the coming weeks/months.
