Crandall's Theater, 9th and E SU: N. W.
It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce our new Theater,
known as the Avenue Grand. 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:
CrandalUs Apollo Theater, 624 H St N. E.
IssssaL I KssssslslsssVK ssiBwgPshsssssssCTsssssssssssssssssssK "'i"'
Crandall's Avenue Grand Theater,
Perm. Ave. S. E. bet. 6th and 7th Sts.
Another Crandall Theater To Be
Announced Soon.
1st. 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.
