TO OUR FRIENDS OF WATER VALLEY AND VICINITY
At last we find your New Theatre about completed and ready to entertain you
with the very best of everything. We want you to feel that this Theatre is your Theatre
and that our services are always at your command.*
We have spared no expense and trouble to make this new pleasure home of yours at
tractive, comfortable and as near fire proof as possible.
Our equipment is brand new, having purchased the very best machines on the market
and you will find our seats of the highest type, being solid mahogany, high comfortable backs
with leather cushion seats. We also have the Gold Fibre screen, the very finest to be had.
The Theatre and Movie business is not a new game with us for we are now operating
three Theatres in the state and our experience for the past eight years leads us to believe that
w e are capable of bringing you the class of amusement that you want, and we expect with the
above equipment the service we render and the program used to have a combination second
to none.
You can find a large city or a larger house, but check it up, and when you come back
take a good look at your New Home Theatre, and .see if you are not proud of it.
Our motto is “To Show Nothing Better Than The Best.” There is one request in the
beginning we would like to make, that is, if you are displeased with anything pertaining to
management or pictures, do not hesitate to tell us. Remember we cannot be all over the
building at once, neither are we mind readers, so how can we correct a thing we know noth
ing about, and in this connection, if you are pleased, a kind word would do good and be ap
preciated more than a big bunch of flowers later.
Elsewhere will be found a partial list of our Holiday attractions, please look them
over, and let us have the pleasure of seeing you often thereby making us both glad.
Assuring you of our whole-soul co-operation, and earnest desire to give you strictly
first-class amusement, and thanking you in advance for any favors you may see fit to show us
we are,
Your friends, ,
WHYTE & HOOKE, Proprietors,
