American Pork" oho or the best and
most convenient opera houses of any
city In tho stato of a similar slzo.
Chief among tho Improvements is
tho Installation of the steam heating
plant. Nine thousand foot of steam
radiation has been employed which
gives all parts of th building an even
temporturo and makes It a most pleas
ant place to spend a cold winter even
ing. An electric nrch has been ln-
boauty of the place and Increases
stalled which adds materially to tho
tho light available
Now paper has been put on the
walls and tho wholo interior has been
given a now coat of paint and bronze
to a good effect.
Tho 'entire body of tho houso la
. now seated with opera chairs, one
hundred and tlfty of which are cush
loned and arranged In sets of twos.
Thore nro three hundred seats on the
main floor. Each seat has twentj
inches of Bpoco as compared with
seventeen Inches used In mnny other
houses. Thero are two hundred more
scats in tm balcony giving tho houso
a total seating capacity of live hun
dred. In case of flro thore are eight ways
of egress, reducing any danger from
this source to a minimum. Besides
bolng well heated tho placo Is also
Tho stago is of sufllclont sizo to
accommodate any scenery that travel.
Ing. troups might bring with them.
Besides being nttcd up for tho or
t dlnary show or theatrical prefor
raance, arrangements have been per
fected to make It also an ideal mo
Uon picture houso. Tho operating
room in tho rear has had a cement
floor placed' in it and boen lined,
walls and celling with asbestos, bo
that In caso of Alms catching fire tho
flames could bo extinguished without
danger to tho remainder of tho build
Two of tho best machlnos on the
market havo been purchased at a cost
of ?600. Thero aro uono botUr made.
The screen on which tho pictures aro
projectod will bo twenty feet from
tho closest spectator, and eighty feet
from tho machine which is consider
ed Ideal by most picture nvn. Tho
American Theatre of Salt Lako City Is
elghty-flvo feet. On tho other sldo of
tho curtain and back for, about Jtcn
feet thero will bo walls painted black,
Iuicn a garden scene to tho front of
tho stago. This will pormlt a dim
light In tho main body of tho houso
whilo tho pictures aro being shown.
Soon as spring opens up tho front
will bo romodoled with ilro brick and
tho entrances changed.
Tho building Is owned by a stock
company. Tho Mutual Improvement
Associations, tho Choir, tho Belief
Society owning n part of tho stock
though tho majority Is hold by
Christian M. Beck, tho hotel and liv
ery man. It has had twenty-nlno
years of Interesting history, during
which time It has cost Its owners up
wards of $20,000 and produced no
