Open Theater Has Directed Sound (Jan, 1936)
Open Theater Has Directed Sound
WHEN neighbors protested against the noise emanating from a gigantic loud speaker used in a Los Angeles outdoor theater, the manager promptly installed low volume magnetic speakers which cannot be heard beyond the lot. They are hung before each automobile.
The outdoor theater consists of a ten-acre parking lot and a giant screen measuring 40 feet by 50 feet. Spectators view the program from their own automobiles.
