Israelite House of David - Theatre Chains
The largest theater chains were the Keith, the Orpheum and the
Pantagas circuits. The House of David Bands played under contract
to all three as well as some of the smaller chains.
Theatre chains owned theaters across the country. Each chain contracted acts to appear in their chain exclusively. A contracted act would travel across the county appearing in the theaters of the chain they were contracted to. This was called traveling the circuit.
