Coston is complaining about a change in the programming policy of the Tower Theatre (Chicago). He reveals that it used to have five acts of vaudeville and a movie, but now it plays full musical comedies ('No No Nanette" etc.) with a movie as an added attraction -- and all for 35 cents. Coston sees this as unfair competition and a menace to the straight motion picture theatres.
