About this Image

Title Victoria - Ad - management change
Date 6/19/1924
Item Type Newspaper (advertisement)
Publication Wilmington Star
Description Ad with headline "A Most Important Announcement To Wilmington Theatre Patrons," presumably from Howard and Wells, who own the theater and have taken back its lease after Jack Marcus forfeited it. Says it will be the "first absolutely one hundred per cent program of gigantic motion picture productions ever offered to the people of Wilmington." Says may not be able to be open 6 days per week in they can't get pictures that measure up, but would prefer to be dark rather than show inferior product. Theater name has reverted to just Victoria rather than New Victoria.
