Notice is hereby given that this Theater will be closed April 3, thoroughly remodeled, and will reopen about April 15 as a first-class Feature Photoplay House, with the best pictures obtainable and a high-class orchestra. We now operate, as you know, the Crandall Theater, Ninth and E streets northwest, also the Apollo Theater, 624 H street northeast, and after April 15 we will give the Southeast section an up-to-date theater. Our intentions are to have a first-class theater located in each section of the city, placing us with our chain of theaters in a position to always furnish our patrons at the various theaters with the best in mo tion pictures, accompanied by good music. Our next announcement will deal with our proposed Jarge theater in Mt. Pleasant, located on Fourteenth street, the exact location to be made known at a later date,-and at this time wish to assure you that we have absolutely nothing to do with, and have no connection with, any other that has recently been announced in the Mt. Pleasant section. We make mention of this fact to set at rest any false impressions and as answer to the many inquiries which have been received requesting information as to whether or not we have any connection with any of those formerly announced on Fourteenth street. We also take this opportunity to advise the public about buying stock in moving picture theaters. Investigate the Following: 1 1 1 1 CrandalUs Apollo Theater, 624 H St N. E.

What is the financial standing of those most interested? 2d. How much stock have they subscribed for, and how much actual cash did they invest? 3d. Arc there any PROMOTION FEES, high prices to be paid for LEASES, or is there much watered stock? 4th. What salary (if any) arc the officers of the company to receive 7 6th. Will the total investment be so great that a profit Mould be utterly, impossible? 6th. If there were a profit, would they declare dividends, and divide it among the stockholders, or would they dispose of the profits in high salaries to officers of the Company? 7th. Have the organizers, whoever they may be, had any prac tical experience in the moving picture business, and have they been successful? This last question is a very important one, for, regardless of what their financial standing may be, thousands of dollars have been lost injhe moving picture business mainly through the lack of experience and unnecessary expenditures. ' I want to assure the public that 1 make this statement purely for their own benefit, as in many cities large stock selling propositions have been floated, and the public have suffered through stock jobbers. My advice to those contemplating buying stock in a moving pic ture theater proposition, is to give the above very careful consideration. (Signed) h. M. CRANDALL. U In vasnineion tor a visit.
