Joe Rowan 700 Washington and gets you As certainly As if you were pairing to a amp sold something. V the biggest objection that comes out of this beyond the objection to the advertising itself is the knowledge on the part of every movie goer that he is paying for something he does t want. When he bought his ticket he made no agreement to watch advertising. He came to see a motion picture a cartoon or a newsreel and not a Bunch of nonsense about where he should get his car repaired or buy an engagement ring. It costs sixty cents in this town to Sec a first run movie generally. It costs fifty cents to see a first run second rate movie in this town generally. It costs thirty cents or maybe thirty five cents to see a first run third rate movie in this town generally. On the surface one would find Little to object to As rates Are concerned. Nobody a or almost nobody objects paying sixty cents to see a Good motion picture.

For those we will pay sixty five cents or fifty five cents or forty or thirty five cents As the Case May be. The extra Nickel coming in should easily offset the loss the Heaters would sustain by cutting the Throat of the advertising they now handle. The establishments that advertise in the Heaters would almost certainly sur Vive the demise of that form of publicizing their wares. The Public a temper would improve immeasurably. A a Hollywood it. Confesses is i a bad Way. The Box office has become a lonely place and is getting lonelier All the time. Hollywood has been unable to discover the reason for All this but devotes much time to investigations of the insidious influence of television. But Hollywood could easily Advance its state by treating its customers with a Little Shore consideration. It does no to have to depend entirely on grubbing for what it earns. It does no to depend entirely on the Sale of Popcorn. The exhibitors who gladly and voluble explain their predicaments say that they need every Nickle they can Lay their hands on if Only to break even. We offer them a scheme for laying their hands on a lot of Nickels. It is Worth five cents to this movie goer to avoid being battered and bruised by Clumsy childish cloying advertising it might even be Worth More than that to some other people but we feel that a Nickel is sufficient. Then if the advertising can to be dispensed with we shall dispense with the motion picture As entertainment and buy a television set.
