STATESMAN MATINEE ELSINORE
MONDAY; FANCHON AND MARCO
A real treat Is in store for theater goers qn Monday in as
much as The Oregon Statesman has made arrangements with
" the Elsinore theater for the Monday matinee, March 12.
This Monday matinee means that the people going to the
theater will witness Moss and Frye in the famous Fanchon
and Marco Idea. "How High Is Up?" And, Oh Boy! that will
be a Joyful matinee because those two bring with them all
their fun, tricks, silly questions and what-nots.
In addition to the Fanchon and Marco treat the patrons will
be able to see on the screen the picture "Get Tour Man" fea
turing Clara Bow. Briefly, this picture tells the story of a
French youth and an American girl who are locked in a mus
eum. The French youth has been engaged to marry a woman
of his own land for years; but the American girl decides other
wise and so breaks it up. There are tears, laughs, drama,
' thrills and finally a cleverly, executed "compromise." It is
a real thriller.
And now comes the final instructions as to how to gain
admittance to the Elsinore for this wonderful treat. The Mon
day matinee coupon in this Green Section of The Oregon states
man, a sales slip for one dollar from some advertiser in this
section and 16 cents will admit any one to the matinee on
Monday, March 12.
