Bonnie Annie Laurie is supplied with a relief film in the shape of a Fox Sun shine comedy entitled "Roaring Lions and the Midnight Express." To those who recall Roaring Lions and Wild Women," played at the Rickards and Nace houses recently this picture will come as a welcome booking for the former was little short of a riot. The lions are. so well trained that they do almost human stunts. The dou ble program will be held for Monday as well. WICKERSHAM OPENS ACADEMY LAST NIGHT YVith its interior artistically deco rated and completely rejuvenated, the Wickersham academy celebrated its opening to Phoenix dance lovers, as a Mecca for refined and pleasant even ings, last night. Features of the special program were the exhibition dances furnished by Mr. Wickersham and his charming partner, Miss Lucile "cnish. The clever and ultra-modern Fox-Tango, which these talented young people danced, was an immediate hit. The ballet sextet burst forth in tho most striking and fetching costumes and it follows that the mem bers' of the sextet made themselves ex tremely popular with their refreshing number, "A La ogue.' The large and spacious dance floor was packed to its very limits by the largest crowd that ever has attended the academy dances. Everybody enjoyed the unique spot prizes, favors, and serpentine stream ers and the Wickersham jass orchestra out-did itself with new song and dance hits. OLIVE TELL IN "THE GIRL AND THE JUDGE" change of program will be presented by the Follies Monday night. Miss Tell is at her prettiest and -most interesting in "The Uirl and the Judge," in which she is cast as Wini fred Stanton, a young college girl just home from a foreign tour who is ap palled to find that her mother is a kleptomaniac. Miss Tel! plays the part of the girl who is deprived for the time of her social position and foresaken by her fiance because of the revelatione i concerning her mother's thieving tend ency an dshe handles this difficult part so skilfully that one forgives the light fingered lady because of her charming daughter. As the plot develops, Wini fred finds a new lover in Judge George Chartris. a wealthy New Englander. in politics, who penetrates Winifred's de fense, and later seeks her hand in mar riage. The play is splendidly photo graphed and there are some wonderful bits of New England scenery that are certain to appeal. The Screen Telegram contains many views from "over there." That particu lar portion of the film which shows member of an American aerial obser vation unit at work on the western front in France will probably be of paramount interest to Phoenicians at this time. There are various other "shots" from "over there" that round out the film to perfection. Starting this week, there will be pic ture programs, exclusively, on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after noons with the old prices prevailing. There will be complete matinees Sat urday and Sunday afternoon. These full matinees will include the picture program and" a regular performance by the Broadway Follies. o LAMARA - Peggy Hyland, international screen favorite, opens the week at the Lamara theater in a timely picture of such ex cellence that the trade papers have said PEG G.V H YLAMD In "Bonnie Annie Laurie" at Lamara Sunday and Monday PEGGY HYLAND IN LAMARA FEATURE ficin tin basic faclw In the life of a I woman who has to fight her way from day to day surrounded by the wolves of society is the aim hero is said to be one yarn that will get over with some to spare. It's not going to be classed in the tommnti or garden variety and it may come in tor abuse from those who see only life from a two-penny angle. "Tiic Reason Why" is the story of a girl wife, married and discontented. Her husband is a brute and is killed by the people whim he oppresses and this girl flees with her child to escape a like fate when she fim'.s a woman dy ing who is her t-xai t counterpart and on the dving woman i:t a letter from an uncle who invites her to make her waltn. but if red blooded reality donohnme wi'n him. It's an easy thing for the persecuted girl wife to take the place of the dead niece wha has never seen the uncle and the story that fol lows when this money mad uncle tries to sell her on' the open market to the highest bidding rake in a smart set is the thought for the Elenor Glyn pic ture? It's not just the kind of picture the theater might call for the whole family but the management believes that if the review has attained his or her "think age" this picture will open up new lines of thought from angles that are far from new to the world at large. With "The Reason Why" is seen a good western "The Fame of the West," with none other than Cleo Madison, who once played stock engagement in Phoenix. Opening this morning at the La mara is a William Fox production with winsome Peggy Hyland entitled "Bon nie Annie Laurie," and the Motion Pic ture News reviewing it says: "It is a war picture without preachment or war hatred. For it is a beautiful love. story of a Scotch lassie who is pledged by her father to a Scot who marches to war. And. then comes a shipwrecked soldier to the highland farm of her father and she nurses him back to health only to be turned from her own roof because the father thinks she has been his dupe. The scenes change from Bonnie Scotland to the battle fields of France where Bonnie Annie Laurie is a Red Cross nurse and the stranger who had suffered a loss of memory restored to his right mind is fighting for his coun try in the American trenches. The man she is to marry is thrown in contact with the man she loves and all three are brought to the realization of their faiths and vows and when the Scotchman is blinded and rendered helpless the girl keeps her promise and marries him despite the fact that she loves too well her sweetheart of the storm. The New Y'ork papers say it Is one war picture that anyone can see and be better for having seen, for it is filled H I P 3 DAYS LAMARA 2 DAYS the with infinite tenderness and. has love theme that is as dainty as Scotch hether bell. Peggy Hyland has the part of Bon nie Annie Laurie and the scenes in. Scotland are laid in the very. country Robert Burns made famoua in song and story. Olive Tell In "The Girl and the Judge," and a Columbia Screen Tele gram combine to make the picture pro gram opening at the Columbia theater today one of unusual excellence. The Broadway Follies will present "A Night I In China Town," for the last times this matinee and night. A complete w I c K E R S H A M s 1 Dances Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.
