CAL INDIES FAVOR KENT CONTRACT Los Angeles, Jan. 23. Virtual approval of the S. R, Kent pact by the Southern California In- dependent Theatre Owners Is con- tained In power of attorney that has been given by the association to M. A. Llghtman, head of Motion Picture Theatres Owners o£ Amer- ica. Local association has advised Llghtman that it strongly favors a uniform contract, and empowers him to represent it In the final draft acceptance. I<:xhlbs are hopeful that end of the depression will have been reach- ed by mid-summer, and that with the advent of the new film , buying season a state ot normalcy will again prevail. The Kent pact, they hold, will be a bier step towards re- lieving the straitened condition ot many of the indie exhlbs. So far as Southern California in- dependent exhibs are concerned, the current situation Is regarded as particularly dark. Most of the houses have so far been able to weather the storm, with few of the unaffiliated exhibs forced to close^ but it Is generally conceded they cannot hold out much longer. Un- less there are radical and drastlo changes by the start of the new sea> son It will spell quits for any nuni« ber of the smaller house men, it Is claimed.

Stage hands are out of the Fox and Orpheum. Terry McDaniel, district manager for F-WC, continues in the same capacity over the Spokane territory. Tom Olsen, previously Fox man- ager, has changed places with H. D. McBride at the Orpheum on a tryout policy to work out best pos- sible setup for both houses. Jim Runte remains as manager of the State. Fox has dropped admission toik to 40, same as Orph. Previous top was 60, including tax. Toronto Cots Toronto, Jan. 23. Scale cut is the latest to get the customers into the downtown pic- ture houses here. Imperial, ace plc-prez. house, goes 26-35-66; Shea's, plc-vaude. 80-50; Uptown, pix, 26-80-60; Tlvoli, Brit- ish plx, 26-35; Loew's, plx, 26-30-60. All houses figure to get part ot the reduction back by charging 60 cents admission all day on Satur- days and holidays. Used to be 66 after 6, 50 before. DENVER'S CUTS START Spreading Around Town—Labor Started It Price cutting has started In Den- ver. As a result of 16-cent matinee price at the Tabor, the State Is changing its straight 20-cent to 10-15-20, while the Isls Is switching to 10-16. Within the past week two North Denver neighborhoods have cut from 36 to 25. This leaves only three 35-cent houses In town, the Mayan, Aladdin and Ogden, and with these competing more or less with each other. First run prices are: Denham, 15-26; Rlalto, 20-25-40; Paramount, 26-40; and Denver and Orpheum, 26-35-40-DO. Before stage shows went out the last two were getting 65 cents. Including tax. Recently Fox-West Coast boosted all their houses in the Inteimoun- taln dlvl.slon, ortslde of Denver, to 40 cents on Sunday and Monday on ace pictures.
