These Theatoriums Thriving.
Danville, Va., Oct. 27.
The moving picture industry at Dan-
ville, Va., seems to be thriving.    The
population of Danville will not exceed
22,000 and it can boast of having five
moving picture shows in operation. On
the south side there are three, The Pal-
ace, The Dixie and The Gaiety. On the
north side, The Gem and Nickelodeon.
There are very few towns in the country
of this size that can boast of five mov-
ing picture shows and all doing fair busi-
ess, except Gaiety, and they are doing
capacity business. This is also one of the
best theater-going towns in the country,
considering size..
