Orange Picked for $225,000 Play House

ORANGE, July 7 - Furthering the building boom surging through the city, the West Coast Theaters, Inc. operating a string of movie play houses throughout Southern California, announced through its realty representatives, plans for a theater project involving an expenditure of $225,000.

The theater building, which will probably be two-story, is to be located at the corner of Glassell street and Maple avenue on the property owned by Harry Z. Adams, local capitalist.

For years a horseshoe pitching grounds, then croquet [word unreadable, probably 'field'] - the property now will soon vanish as a famous landmark - giving place to a modern cinema palace in the onward march of progress.

A ten year lease on the property and also the building, which, according to the contract, will be built by Mr. Adams, has been negotiated by the theatrical concern.

Seating one thousand persons and embodying everything to be desired in modern theater appointments, the playhouse will be made one of the most magnificent in Orange county, according to plans of the West Coast people.
