Plans for the project include the erection of a projection booth, box office, concession stand, and an encircling wall. Joseph Kinney, general manager of the firm which is backing the theater, has announced that when the new entertainment enterprise is completed there will be a capacity for 600 cars, and the theater will be equipped with individual sound speakers for each car. Estimated cost of the project, expected to be finished in the late spring, is set at $100,000, including equipment.
