A tour of the "Palo," Lowell's beautiful new theatre, assures one that folks of this vicinity are going to be priviledged to enjoy top entertainment in the theatre world. Besides being beautiful, the new establishment boasts installation of newly perfected sound and projection equipment which is absolutely the finest produced. A fresh air heating and cooling plant is now in operation. A feature which all patrons will appreciate is the "cry room" located on the second floor. In the completely soundproof room, mothers can quiet their crying children without leaving the theatre or missing a single portion of the picture and also avoid annoying other patrons of the theatre. A package room has been provided as well as spacious rest rooms. The new theatre was named in a community-wide contest. "Palo" was chosen because it was considered easiest to remember and pronounce. It also has significance, as it ties in the given names of the owners, Mr. and Mrs. Byrnes, Pa-t and Lo-retta. Winner of the naming contest will be revealed with the announcement of the opening date which is expected to be early in February. Congratulations are extended to Mr. and Mrs. Byrnes for their progressiveness.
