New Healy Playhouse, 9th & Houston Streets, Fort Worth, Texas

The Moving Picture News,  September 9, 1911:

Sept. 9, 1911_pe (Medium)

“We present above a picture of the new Healy playhouse in Fort Worth, Texas, which is running Independent releases. Mr. Healy has decorated the lobby with displays advertising the ‘Parting of the Trails,’ one of the famous ‘Flying A’ productions.

“The above cut was taken from a postal card on the reverse side of which was the following communication:

American Film Mfg. Co., Chicago, Ill.
Gentlemen:- This is what I do with your great Western features, two of which I receive weekly–Mondays and Thursdays first run. They certainly get the money for me. On ‘American’ days, we average 2,000 people daily. The picture, as depicted above, is our lobby display of your film entitled ‘The Parting of the Trails.’ The reception accorded it was simply wonderful.

R. A. Healy'”
