Old Pampell's movie postcard, Kerrville, 1914

Years ago, Pampell's showed movies.  From what I can gather, the movies were shown upstairs, near the back of the building, back before it was a brick building.  These were the very earliest movies, and they were silent.
How did Pampell's advertise the show?  They sent out postcards, like the one below.
