Snaps from the Cinemas.

! Aberdare Cinema. i....--...-


Aberdare Cinema. As will be seen from the advertise- ment above, Clarke's the Man has another gigantic programme for next week. He leaves no stone unturned and spares no expense, to appeal suc- icessftilly to his multitude of patrons. The "Aberdare Cinema" and "Clarke's the Man" are phrases that have be- come synonymous. The one means the i other and are quite inseparable. Just a glance through next week's bill of fare is enough to prove to the veriest layman in picture theatres that there is something to be had when you Ii-e paid your money at the entrance. Clarke's the Man makes no doubt about the matter, and trusts to the splendid insight of Aberdarians to appreciate his efforts and give him bumper houses during the week. On Monday, Tues- day and Wednesday, the beautiful drama. "The Mystery of St. Martin's Bridge" holds pride of place. It is laid in the home of the pa.,sions-Italv. The stury is of Lord Martagne, who wins the heart of Cora, a mountain girl, and then casts her aside. Cora seeks revenge, but is foiled. Many passion- ate scenes follow, and the climax is reached when the girl disguised fights a duel with the nobleman and kills him. Another couple are convicted of the murder, but Cora confesses at the last moment.—Those who have followed the history of the famous Loftus family will be pleased to hear that the ex- clusive film, A lady of quality," has been secured by Clarke's the Man. Miss Cecilia Loftus, the daughter of that great Vaudeville artiste, Miss Marie Loftus, takes the leading part. The story runs how Sir Jeoffrey, a dis- solute rogue, hears of the arrival of another female child in his family. He ignores her and does not come in con- tact with the child—Clorinda—until her sixth year. She is playing with his powder horn and he upbraids her. She picks up a hunting crop and in her tiny wrath beats Sir Jeoffrey. Her spirit and daring attract him. and he decides to dress her as a boy. Years go by and still dressed in masculine attire, her notoriety reaches London, and Sir John Oxon, the beau ideal of the town, lays a wager that he will win the heart of Clo, not as a hoyden but as a woman. She is stung by his banter and chal- lenges him to a duel in which Oxon is worsted. Clo announces her decision to discard male attire and Oxon wins his wager. His short-lived triumph, how- ever, opens up a new phase in the drama. Clo hears of his boasting and transfers her affection to Lord Dunstan- wolde. At his death Oxon forces his attention on her; and becomes so in- tolerable that she strikes him with her hunting crop and he falls dead at her feet. She hides the body and ends her life in self-imposed expiation. The usual Saturday Matinee will be con- tinued.
