You may see pictures of the New Mission Theatre that were taken in 1943 here: View link

These pictures are part of the San Francisco Library on-line archives. My father Don Leon and his Petite Orchestra played there between the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. You may view his Showbill here: http://lotsofsites.com/gen/showbill.shtml

These pictures are part of the San Francisco Library on-line archives. This was a stunning theatre. My father Don Leon and his Petite Orchestra played there between the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. You may view his Showbill here: http://lotsofsites.com/gen/showbill.shtml

The Criterion Theatre has proved quite interesting to me. I have a picture of Don Leon and his Petite Orchestra taken at the Criterion Theatre. The information on the back of the photo is in my fathers (Don Leon’s) handwriting and reads: Criterion, Oklahoma City, 1923/24. You may see this photograph along with a news clipping of a review for the movie “Brass” with Irene Rich. This was a silent movie that came out in 1924.
