The Electric Theatre. Press opinions, together with patrons' opinr- ions, of the superlative programmes shown by Mr. Bowen, are unanmous that his judgment for catering to vast audiences daily is beyond reproach. To-day and to-morrow he has again brought to our notice a special brand new film which can only be seen at the Electric, entitled "The House of a Thousand Candles." The distinguishing feature of this production is the delightful photography, which is really exquisite. The gardens with winding paths, beau tiful floriculture, lakes and delightful perspec- tives are indeed dreams of beauty. Thorough- ness is the keynote of this filmed version from the play and novel by Meredith Nicholson. At the Park Hall, Cardiff, last week, this picture was proclaimed by everyone as the best thjf have ever'witnessed; and judging bv the crowds who attended the Electric last night the picture will meet with a big reception to-day and to- morrow. There is also a neatly arranged prog- ramme of exclusive subjects—dramas, comics and interest —which alone are well worth a visit. On Monday next and the following two days, ".J ohn Glayde's Honour" will be the chief at- traction. If it cannot be said that Mr Alfred Sutro. in writiiig." John Glayde's Honour," hit across a very original theme for ldhe stage, it cannot be denied that he provided the plot and atmosphere of a storv which is extremely well suited to the film. For it is a storv of vivid contrasts, strong lights being thrown throughout on two widely varied characters. It is purely a domestic drama but in confining itself to the home circle and martial relations, it manages to present a picture which has yet to be surpassed for strength and subtlety. The caste is precisely the same as appeared in "Builder of Bridges," and is produced by the Frohman Amusement Co. On Thursday next, Margarita Fischer again occupies the screen at the Electric, where she is a pronounced favourite, in a oicture given the title of Infatuation," which is a strong story enacted in a bold way, and is adapted from the novel by Lloyd Osbourne, co-author with Robert Louis Stevenson. Next week pro- mises to be a red-letter week with such extraor- dinary programmes.
