FEATURES Ili FL 11161(111100 OTHER LEADERS TY ITY IT Y ITY Boston Man President of Theater Owners of America Says Television Most Serious Problem Facing Industry BY DICK PITTS (Observer Movie Editor) One of the most serious problems facing the motion picture exhibitor today is television according to Arthur H Lockwood of Boston Mass president of the Theater Owners of America who arrived here yesterday to attend the three-day 37th annual convention of the Theater Owners of North Carolina and South Caro lina Already in the larger cities like New York and Washington movie houses are noticing a decline in box office receipts attributed directly to television Mr Lockwood pointed out and naturally such competition is causing mounting concern With the improvement of television broadcasting and reception it naturally follows that this competition will become keener and movie attendance less he said Mr Lockwood recalled the scare radio gave the motion picture industry some years ago and how radio eventually became a complement to the industry rather than a serious competitor But he explained television is not a parallel because television offers visual as well as aural entertainment "And on a day like today" Mr Lockwood said gesturing toward the cold grey sky and hint of snow "the average movie-goer would much prefer to stay at home by his television set and avoid traffic parking problems and the expense of a theater ticket" CHIEF PROBLEM Television's chief problem is programming he said and films naturally are the answer: therefore exhibitors are discouraging producers from selling their old films to television because such sales cause inroads on the exhibitors' box office and eventually cuts down returns on the producers' current and future product Most potential threat of television Mr Lockwood said is phonovision which is now in an experimental stage Phonovision means that the television set owner can call his telephone company and order whatever motion picture is available The telephone company enters a charge for the service and makes it possible for the set owner to see the picture in the privacy and coin-fort of his own home Another problem facing theater exhibitors was pointed out by Herman Levy general counsel of the Theater Owners of America That is the amusement tax which is far out of proportion in comparison with other industries he said EXCISE TAXES The excise taxes which includes amusement cosmetics leather goods luxury and other taxes account for one-sixth of the national income Mr Levy said What wth increased operational costs -La the fact that the exhibitor can ill afford to increase the cost of admission to "the poor man's entertainment medium" increasing amusement taxes are working an unfair hardship on all exhibitors Mr Levy declared Among other industry leaders who arrived yesterday were Gael Sullivan executive director of the Theater Owners of America and Andy W Smith Jr general sales manager of 20th Century-Fox Film corporation Approximately 500 exhibitors and guests are expected to attend the convention which began yesterday afternoon with registration and get-together parties at Hotel Charlotte Altec Service

$387523000 (112 per cent) over 1947 the department estimated Back of this healthy increase in the business volume lies the increase in the "per family buying income" which in 1948 advanced 52 per cent

30640 These estimates include the population taken into the municipality through the r xtrnsion of boundaries January But outside the municipality reside many thousands of other families for whom Charlotte is the buying center As compared with the estimated 140000 city population there are an estimated 1250000 Carolinians within convenient shopping range t(lf) miles t of Charlotte's stores and within easy reach of its service establishments That wholesale volume for 1948-- an estimated $0:13235000—indicates the dependence placed upon Charlotte wholesalers by retaileri throughout a vast area of the two states The city's unprecedented retail sales totaling Slati million in 1948 (as compared with $125 million in 1940 and WO million in 1947) are indicative of Charlotte's growing importance
