The Ridgewood, Fourth Anniversary Week

Exhibitors Herald, February 19, 1921:

"Though 'The Mark of Zorro,' Douglas Fairbanks' most recent United Artist production was the attraction, the theatre and the [fourth] anniversary were brought most prominently into the foreground in practically all publicity efforts made."

"Brooklyn exhibitors display sound showmanship in thus focusing attention upon their theatres. Theatre thought of the day evidences a remarkably unified movement toward improvement in that direction.

"The service of the leaders in this movement is a genuine one which should not be permitted to pass unappreciated."
