THEATRES IN COURSE OF CONSTRUCTION ON JANUARY 1, 1914, 221-39 W. 47th St, 586 Seventh Ave., 207th St. near Sherman Ave., 212 W. 81st St., 250 W.90th St., 550 W. 181st St., 201 W. 123d St., 648 Third Ave., 250 W. 95th St., 607 W. 147th St., 52 W. 109th St., 153 W. 49th St., 223 W. 41st St.

The hour for beginning theatrical performances in New York varies, being dictated by the length of the plays. Curtains rise between 8 and 8.30 P. M.; doors at all theatres open at 7.30 P. M. Saturday matinees are given at all theatres; mid-week matinees are given on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, the days varying at different theatres and attractions. A few popular-price theatres and all-vaudeville houses give daily matinees. Such afternoon performances begin about 2 P. M.

The standard price for the best seats in New York theatres of the first class is $2, and in some houses $2.50, the scale grading down to fifty cents, according to location. In cases of the appearance of great celebrities an additional charge is someti nes, but not often, made.

The standard price for the best seats at the so-called popular-price theatres is $1, the scale grading down to twenty-five cents, according to location. At these theatres matinee seats are usually sold at reduced rates. A number of theatres of both the first and second classes in New York are being temporarily used as mixed moving-picture and vaudeville houses. Among such theatres are the Savoy, Lincoln Square, Third Avenue, New Star, Grand Street Theatre, Proctor's 23d and 58th Street Theatres. Circle, Herald Square, American Roof, Bijou, Broadway, Madison Square Roof, Miner's Eighth Ave., The Nemo, the Greeley Square at 6th Ave. and 30th St., and Hammerstein's Roof Garden. The prices of admission vary at these houses when used for moving-plcture entertainments, some as low as ten cents. The standard price for the best seats at the Metropolitan Opera House Is $6, the scale grading down to $1, according to location. At this house seats and boxes are sold by annual subscription also. Some of the boxes are leased or owned outright; such boxes are valued as high as $100.000.

In the number, beauty and convenience of its theatres New York now leads all other cities of the world. Architecturally and in art treasures, however, some of the municipal and State endowed theatres of Continental Europe still excel. The New York Hippodrome, seating 5.200 people, is the largest and finest place of amusement of its kind in the world. The depth of the stage from the footlights to the back wall is 110 feet, while there is a width of 200 feet.

The Court of Appeals of the State of New York has decided that a theatre ticket is a personal contract which may be cancelled at the will of the management of the theatre. But the holder of a ticket which entitles him to a seat at a given time and place of amusement, upon being refused admission, must be refunded the full price of such ticket at the box office.
