(ood Pictures for Opera House
Gilbert M. Tyler, manager of the
Opera House, made a flying trip to
Atlanta Sunday, in order to get some
first run bookings on several feature
pcttires that. are soon to be released
in this territory. These pictures will
be in circuit with Columbia and will
come to Laurens before many other
Fouth Carolina cities. This -will be due
to the fact that recently Mr. Tyler
called a. meeting of a number of ex
hibitors and theatre men and as a
result they formed an association
whose aim is to improve their respec
tive theatres as well as their chances
for obtaining the biggest that can be
hiad in super-feature productions.
While in Atlanta Mir. Tryler ai'rang
ed foi' another date on the super-fea
tui'e "Salome", that failed to arrive
here last Thur'sday and disappointed
mainy p~eople who had come many
miles- to see it. Announcement of the
('oming showving of "Salome" wvillibe
made shortly when full particulars
will be given to the public.
