Tone Theatre Records

 Collection — Container: M1982-04
Identifier: M1982-04

Scope and Contents

Records, 1947-1955, of a movie house in Cantonment, Florida, including correspondence, film booking records, financial and personnel files and other operating papers. Tone Theatre was part of the Fred T. McLendon Theatres operated in partnership with Heywood Hanna, Jr.

These materials were received with the Herbert L. Bryans papers donated in June 1982 by his son, Robert L. Bryans. It appears that Dr. Bryans rented the upstairs office of Bryans pharmacy to a number of firms and the records of these firms, if abandoned, became part of the Bryans accumulation.

Special note should be made about the statistical information in these records such as weather, films shown and attendance, and the tax records of Mr. Hanna which reflect his other business activities in Milton, Florida.
