PrEmnAnmoNrc HALE.—Nero • • 8.15-2.45

[A good film, ably acted in splendid settings. Anachron- isms are reduced to a minimum and the proportions of history are distorted only sufficiently to make a good story.]

SCALA THEATRE.—The Birth of a Nation .. 8.0-2.15

[This is still Mr. Griffith's best production.]

NEW OXFORD THEATRE.—The Storm .. 8.30-2.30 [Rather tedious preliminary incidents which culminate in a thrilling forest fire. The nobleness of the countryman and the wickedness of the townsman are perhaps a little exaggerated.]
