The advent of the moving picture film has created a revolution in the I entertainment world, for it has en-; abled the managers of unprofitable theatres and vaudevile houses to substitute for a human program, cost ing them about $3000 a week, a I moving picture show at a cost of I about $200 a week. And so, dozens! of legitimate theatres, built for trag-t edy, comedy or vaudevile, are now devoted exclusively to picture shows,' the price of admission to the best | seats being only five and ten cents, I instead of fifty cents and one dollar; as formerly charged. In New York j city alone there are over 300 flour- j ishing nickelodeons. The newest pic-! . ture theatres are being put up on a! f pretentious scale A palace was re | cently erected on busy Fourteenth | street at a cost of $300,000, being • lavasbily decorated with gilding, car-' • jrara marble and other costly allure-! i raenta. I'ntil quite recently, however, the j daring conceptions of the moving pic-' , tnre man have always had one ser-i , ions setback. They were silent. For years the originators of these dumbj , comedies and tragedies have dreamed , of the day when some genius would j arise and combine the phonograph principle with the motion picture—al magician, who would wave a wand' over the moving picture world and I . endow its voiceless, if eloquent act ors with the gift of speech. And af • ter years of difficult experimental • work the dream has at last been real- ! • ized in a wonderful little machine , called the cameraphone. which is! probably the most important ad- < vance in the history of motion photo-j < graphy.—From the "Romance of < Moving Pictures." by P.
