Universal City -- September 28, 2014

Moving Picture World, 26-September-1914

In this six-page ad, Universal announced the building of its new studio, Universal City.  Be sure to click on the images to see larger versions. 

Universal's old Los Angeles studio had burned earlier in the year:

"THE UNIVERSAL is now spending A MILLION DOLLARS in the construction of AN ENTIRE CITY -- a City large enough to hold a population of 15,000. A City to be devoted exlusively to the making of Motion Pictures."
