Mr. C W. Kavanaugh has bought
our picture show and those who visit
ed the show last Friday evening were
greatly pleased with the changes that
have been made under the new man
agement Under the present ar
rangements we have about as neat,
tidy and pleasant a little show room
as can be found anywhere. The
anti-room, or ticket office, makes a
person feel he is going into a parlor.
In the main room the back aeats have
been raised, the room enlarged and
thoroughly renovated, a fine new
piano installed, an orchestra added,
and these things, with the high class
pictures already arranged fur, is go
ing to give our people one of the
highest class picture shows in Central
Missouri. We congratulate the new
management for giving us such splen
did shows under such fine conditions
and wish them all kinds of success.
