Theatres: Lusk Theatre

The Lusk Standard, June 13, 1919

Lusk Theatre is Now Open

The opening of the new Lusk Theatre in the Odd Fellow's Hall, under the present management of Mr. Maurice Wolf marks a new era in the advance of the Silent Art in the city of Lusk, for in the planning of the theatre Mr. Wolf has spared no expense in order to present the highest achievements in photoplay productions.

The securing of Paramount and Artcraft pictures for the new Lusk Theatre assures the lovers of wholesome amusement all that could be desired in photoplay entertainment.

The announcement that all the Paramount and Artcraft artists will find their way to the silver screen of the Lusk Theatre will prove a source of great delight, for the pictures presented will include plays by America's foremost authors; the presentation of stars whose art is known and loved the world over; and the work of directors and producers whose achievements are indelibly written in the book of Fame.

Among the first of these features to be presented at the Lusk Theatre will be an Artcraft picture, "The Breed of Men" featuring William S. Hart, and in the wide range of fiction, perhaps no stronger story could have been chosen as a vehicle for the display of William S. Hart's talents in western portrayals.

The presentation of the Paramount Short Subjects will also be a regular feature. they will include the Paramount-Burton Holmes travel pictures, Paramount Pictographs, Paramount-Sidney Drew and Arbuckle comedies, and the comedy features by Mack Sennett and his famous Joy Artists.
