Same show - returned by popular demand - with a better poster (at right).

Back by popular demand. Theatre had 624 seats. Full house every night. Simple poster at left tested demand. Better poster (at right) was for return showings. Ron narrated his 16mm films live while I played background music from records borrowed from radio station 2UW (who did our advertising). Slide show was excellent quality 6×6 medium format shots taken with a wide-angle Rolleiflex.  Film being projected was 16mm Kodachrome ORIGINAL footage and very sharp and colorful.  Picture filled the screen top to bottom.

I paid Ron 75% of the profits.  We were both happy with that.

For other future shows where the film was sound-tracked and not requiring any live narration by Ron, the split would have been 50-50 after expenses.
