Motography, December 21, 1912:

“‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever,’ and the results obtained in moving picture decoration and designing of fronts accomplished by the Decorators’ Supply Company are certainly beautiful.

“One of the theaters for which this company designed the front is illustrated on this page. It is one of many popular Chicago houses, and being on State Street is noticed by thousands of people daily.

“The Decorators’ Supply Company design individual decorations for every theater on which its products are used, and will send an expert to anyone to submit plans and estimates without charge. Its advice is valuable to any one contemplating any changes in the design of a theater front.”

Cezar Del Valle is available for theatre talks and walks in 2013.
