Rest Rooms and Offices

All water pipes should be drained, flush boxes should be emptied, and antifreeze or salt should be placed in all traps.

Ticket registers should be removed from the box-office, heavily greased and placed in warm storage.

All signs should be covered and/or taken down, wrapped and stored inside to prevent cracking of paint.

The attraction sign can be set up to announce the reopening. Then posts should be erected at each end and the entire Sign covered with very small mesh wire, or the entire sign can be covered with lumber.

Neon and light bulbs should not be removed. If removed the connections or receptacles will corrode. If it is judged necessary to remove light bulbs, place corks in the sockets.

If your drinking fountains are in the open, they should be covered with a waterproof material to prevent snow melting and bursting the pipes.

If feasible, spotlights and fioodlights should be removed and stored in the booth or refreshment stand.

Refreshment- Stand

All equipment should be thoroughly cleaned, greased, and stacked on countv ers or tables. If possible, wrap equipment thoroughly in cloth or canvas.

Consult your refrigeration service man as to the care of your refrigeration.

After all else is completed, thoroughv 1y close all the portholes in the booth and the doors and the windows in all other buildings. If possible, seal these both inside and out. I

All exposed padlocks should be thoroughly greased and then covered with a tobacco sack, drawn tight and tied. This will give you easy access to the lock, should it be covered with snow or ice on your mid-winter inspection visits.

Most Important

Some dependable member of your organization should make a weekly inspection of the entire theatre throughout the closed season.

Storage of Supplies

Tickets remaining on hand at the end of the season should be carefully audited, checking the number sold during the season against the combined total of those on hand when the season started, plus any additional purchases. After auditing, they should be removed to the main office or some other place where they will not be stolen if someone should break into the theatre.

Your policy and concession trailers should be rewound and placed in metal cans which, in turn, should be removed to dry storage.

The above information seems to me to combine the best ideas experienced.

AT THE TOP, RIGHT. can be seen a closeup of at: m-car speaker that has been thoroughly C011dltioned to withstand the rigors oi the winter months a la Van Lloyd. The speaker is wrapped with a cellophane inner-liner. then covered with a paper bag having a wax-coated exterior. Holes are punched in the bottom of the bag to offset upv condensation which might torm. An overall View at the wrapped speakers may be seen in the second photo. The drive-in entrance is barricaded. bottom, to keep trespassing cars tram entering the grounds during the closed season.
