\ t1«wi) ADVANCt THURSDAY, JUNE tf, WS Seen at the LGONA By T» M. C, MM t « t HI > I M I H"H"1-H-H The problems of a small town motion picture theatre manager tote graphically set forth in the following letter which appeared in a column in the Minneapolis Tribune a few weeks ago. The clipping is self-explanatory. "In New Prague, Minn., theater owner George Jonckowski, operator of the Prague Theater, got. a letter from seventh and eighth graders of the Lonsdalc parochial school protesting his showing of "Pajama Party" and "Sex and the Single Girl," which both had received B ratings from the Legion of Decency." "Jonckowski went to the school and leveled with the kids. His remarks arc reported in the current North Central Allied Theater Owners bulletin:" "Most of you probably know that it was our policy to show nothing but Class A' •; movies from t.1ic Mine we opened tlic theater In 1957 until just recently." "The policy didn't work." Prospective patrons, rather than patronize the Class A films, were going elsewhere to sec the Class Bs, They just laughed at us for showing nothing but kid pictures." "Jonckowski said it's economic suicide these days for an exhibitor to show only Class A pictures: "We have our entire life's savings tied up in our business and we have to protect it as long as we possibly can. 1 have to feed, clothe and shelter my family, fulfill my church and other moral obligations, and if 'A' pictures won't bring in the business we have to resort to pictures that will. We pass up a lot of B pictures that 1 have to pay for and not show at all." Jonckowski also mentioned that plenty of B pictures turn up on TV, but those don't arouse nearly the volume of protests that the B pictures bring to theater men." As we have observed before, most parents know from the various sources available, just what pictures arc fit for their children to see and if they dp not exercise their parental guidance, they have nobody but "SVl P«cty" SUr»» Thtmdty «t tht Thtttr* SKI RESORT SWEETHEARTS — Yvonne Craig, Dwayne Hickmftti, Franklc Avalon and Deborah Walley star as sweethearts'in the new American International Pictures musical comedy "Ski Party" opening Thursday at the Algona Theatre. LISTEN TO KLGA themselves to blame if the kids attend "B" shows. There will always be temptations, if not movies then other sources of evil, and this is strictly a matter for watchful parents and home training, to see the youngsters safely through adolescent problems.
