Improving Gem Service.
W. C. Morris, proprietor of the Gem
Theatre, has installed an entire uew out
fit for the exhibition of moving pictures.
He has a new film machine and the
booth in which it has been installed has
been lined througlioutlJKth sheet iron ,
protecting the bouse fr$m the danger
of fire. The new machine is operated
with a motor with many new improve
ments over the old one, especially in
the saving of current, but the greatest
improvement iu the house is the cur
tain, a new departure in the moving
picture business. This is the "Sun
light" Metallic Cloth Curtain, made by
the company of that name. It is of al
luminum color, increasing the strength,
the tone and life of the pictures in a
marvelous way. Mr. Morris never tires
in adding improvements to the Gem,
but of all these this curtain is the best
he has made. The film service he i
using is also being gradually improved.
The film manufacturers are making im
provements, and as fast as this takes
place Mr. Morris takes pains to secure
the advantages for the Gem. The result
is that he has one of the best motion
picture theatres in the country. The
Gem has mado a specialty of clean pro
ductions, and the house and its man
agement have been accorded much
credit for this. The policy has also
been very profitable as well as popular,
and therefore the splendid reputation of
the Gem Theatre. t j
