News from the Past - June 20, 1929

Sorry to be posting this so late in the day - from the Constitution-Tribune of Chillicothe Missouri, apparently a fairly liberal paper.
But Independence Theatre
Will Appeal From Sentence
Independence Mo, June 20. — (U.P.)-In tho fight to set aside the 20- year-old Sunday showing ordinance, Sunday shows lost the first round here today. W.T. Boles, theater manager, was fined $50 and post by E. N. Parton, police judge, for operating the theater last Sunday.
The case will be appealed to the circuit court. Boles has announced he will keep his theater open again next Sunday.
Interesting to consider what was a big story in 1929 is nothing these days.
