TAKES pleasure in announcing that it has at last succeeded in getting a reliable
Casualty Company to issue Fire and Accident Insurance, at about half the
former rates, to any and all Licensed Theaters.  Heretofore, only about Ten
per cent. (1000) of the Exhibitors have been able to obtain insurance at any price.
q The policy covers all deaths and bodily injuries resulting from either fire or panic in the
theater or on the sidewalk immediately adjacent thereto; liability for death or injury to one
person limited to Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00); total liability, death or injuries to
several persons limited to Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00), covers patrons, owners,
employees, all.  Thirty-five Dollars ($35.00) per year for theaters with maximum
seating capacity of Five Hundred (500) or less; an additional Ten Cents (10 cts.) per
year for every seat over Five Hundred (500).
This insurance will be issued only to LICENSEES of the
Cinlcillnati. O., April 27.
