FIRST BIG FILM
COMES FRIDA>'
Colonial Theatre Will Present "Amer
ica," Using Over One Mile of Film.
"America," the first great New
York Hippodrome producing to be
done in moving pictures, Is scheduled
for presentation at the Colonial thea
ter on Friday. January 1, 1915, for
one day only, which takes over two
hours' run for the films of 6,500 feet
and In seven wonderful parts. For
years film magnates and others have
pursued the Messrs. Shubert with
offers of fabulous sums for the right
to film Hippodrome spectacles, but
a'ways without success. This, be
cause of lack of confidence on the part
of the producers in the ability and
resources of the applicants to proper
ly present the spectacle. Hence It
remained for the great Hippodrome
Inventive gnius, Arthur Voegtlln and
William J. Wilson, the eminent stago
director, to evolve,specific and com
prehensive plans which met with the
approval of the Messrs. Shubert. for
Colng tlio gigantic task properly and
with reasonable assurances that the
outcome would approximate Hippo
drome standards. Thus it was that
"America,", the greatest succes ever
produced at the New York Hippo
drome, came to be perpetuated In
moving pictures.
Thus it is that an old saying, "You
must take your children to the Hip
podrome because they can't send the
Hippodrome to you," is relegated.
Now, all that is best and most entic
ing about the greatest theatre on
earth. Is available everywhere on
earth at a very low cost to the indi
viduals.

ed to $38.40. Barto paid and was re
leased.
