Capitol Theatre, New York City, New York - July 30, 1922
Edward Bowes, Managing Director
"Our True Intent is All For Your Delight"
After the last performance each night, the huge task of housecleaning begins. Each one of the 5300 seats is turned up and cleaned, and every discarded program, scrap of paper and forgotten article collected.
At six o'clock in the morning, a small army consisting of fourteen porters and sixten (sic) scrubwomen invade the theatre. By 12:00 o'clock, thirty minutes before opening time, every corner and surface of the theatre has ben (sic) cleaned and inspected.
The following surfaces are cleaned and polished:
5000 square yards of carpets and draperies.
A perfumed disinfectant is sent through the ventilating system at definite intervals to clean and purify the air.
Before you are invited to enter, the Capital Theatre is made as immaculate as the most up-to-date mechanical appliances, soap, powder, water and the plenty of old fashioned elbow grease can make it.
Look around NOW and choose the nearest Exit to your seat. In case of fire walk (not run) to THAT exit. Do not try to beat your neighbor to the street.
