  1. Maria, in Covent Garden in London is a toy store (Pollocks) that has the little cardboard theaters reprinted and sells them. Plus a lot of other Victorian-era-inspired toys. VERY nice. The 2002 Nicholas Nickleby movie opens with Nathan Lane narrating over a cardboard theater scene, if you want to see one more-or-less in action.
