The present nmnnxeinent of Jim
l'njto when (sklng ocr the theatre
hint Julio decided Dint the policy nf
the house would be not only to fur
nish tlio betit pictures obtainable, hut
UK Medford was a music, loving oity,
to rivo h pntrons the very host
music. Tltii tiolfcy hiH been adhered
to, nnd the result wan ttin Par!
theater orchestra which without ex
ception was the finest musical ore;nn
izntiou ever tnnintnined in this city
for nny lcufr.lt of time.
In making n careful ennvns of the
best moving- picture theatres in the
1nrgc.it cities, it was learned that in
the past, eiuhteen mouths, many of
tlie.e theatres were installing the
lurg NVurlitscr Unit Orchestras. One
of the reasons for placing this unit
orchestra in the moving picture
theatres, was that the entire orches
tration waB under the absolute con
trol of one player permitting him to
n greater extent to kep the miiMe
in harmony with tho picture. The
management of the Pace has often in
the past bight months realized the ut
ter impossibility of n large orchestra
with many individuals playing, no
matter how skilful they arc, to keep
in harmony with' tho pictures, as the
wicncs lire of frtich diversified char
acter nnd change co suddenly on the
screen that a lively two-step is not in
harmony with a death-bed scene,
while a beheading is ludicrous with
a lively "rag.'
Tho management of the. best
theatres having faced this same prob
lem, decided that the only way to
overcome this and still preserve the
large orchestral music was accom
plished by installing the largo unit
orchestras. The Pn"c in carrying out
this same idea, nnd the policy of fur
nishing .the very best obtainable to
its patrons, decided to install one of
these large orchestras.
The ninnrtgi'inent realizes that this
midline, as well as the theatre, is a
little in advance of the present popu
lation of .Med ford, but having abso
lute, confidence in the future growth
and development of the citv nnd val
ley, decided that this would eventual
Iv become a splendid investment.
Tho Vitagraph Theatre in New York
which was conustmctcd for the pur
pose of giving the Vitagraph produc
tions the first Xew York run, uxes a
large unit orcbestrn, and by the way,
tho Page in the future will have the
exclusive Vitagraph service for Med
ford. The Liberty theatre in Seattle
has recently installed n .fIJO.OOO Wur
litr.cr unit orchestra. In fact, fif
teen to twenty of these large
machines hnvo been installed in the
pnst few months on the Pacific coast.
Their use is vcrv general throughout
There is a mistaken idea among the
public that these instruments are
purely mechanical. They arc oper
ated by men trained by the company
to play this special moke. Mr. Hunt
of Oakland, California, is in Medford
sent here by the company to piny this
instrument. Tho mechanics are now
busy finishing the installation of thn
