I THE ROYAL HALL PICTUREDROME. There have been many complaints since what was known as the Royal Hall Picture Palace, Ledbury, was closed in Whit-week, that there was nowhere to go in the town, but picture-goers, and that there are quite a host of them in t-he town and district we have no doubt, will not have this complaint to make after this week as the Royal Hall Picturedrome, under the management of Mr E H Hopkins, will be re-opened on Monday next, with a most attractive programme. During the close season, if we may so term it, certain alterations have been made in the hall which will give patrons an added feeling of security. Instead of the operating box being at the rear of the hall, as has formerly been the case, a new fireproof operating box has been fixed <>u'-ide the main building altogether. The fl or is of reinforced c. ncretw, with wads brick and cement, and roof of a11 -t s slalP., laid on reinforced concrete, thus euurely minimising the slightest possible danger to pvrons in case of firn, though such a contingency is very remote in face of the up-to-date appliances uow used in projecting films. The bioscope will be of the type recently used at tbij hall, a Powers, and the picture will be projected through a glass screen on to the sheet on the stage, thus obliterating all sound from the machine and any chance of flickering of the picture, so annoying to an audience. Electric light will be used throughout, the current being obtained from the power station of the Ledbury Electricity Supply Co., Ltd., and a motor generator eet has been installed. The bioscope itself will be worked by a scqpll electric motor. The lighting of the hall will be by four clusters of three electric lamp3, and over each of the four exits of the hall will be a red-shaded electric lamp, which will be burning continuously. The pictures will' be thrown a distance of 80 feet, and this with the addition of the glass screen and the size of the picture should result in an almost perfect reproduction being screened. A capable operator ana pianist will be engaged, end chocolates and cigarettes will be obtainable at the hall. The opeaamec programme for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next is undoubt- edly a strong one. The star film will be a 3,000 feet Gaumont drama of exceptional interest, 'Neath the Lion's Paw," a film the writer recently had the pleasure of seeing away from Led bury, and it will be found to be both interesting, sensational and exciting. The Burglar's Sacrifice is an American Bioscope drama of great interest, and other filn)s include The Vacant Chair," a Than- hauser drama, aod two comedy films in "The Champion" (Keystone), and "The Kinema Girls" (Clarendon). For the week-end programme there is another strong list of films to be shown on Thursday and Friday and at three houses (matinee at 2.30 and two evening perform- ances at 6.30 and 8.45) on Saturday. Targets of Fate is a Reliance drama the popular G M Anderson will appear in his favourite part in "Broncho Billy and Red- man and other films are :—" Reconciled in Blood," a Selig drama; "Where is happiness," a Cines drama; and the humorous element will be represented by the Clarendon George's Joy Ride," and a very amusing Vitagraph Diana's Dress Reform." Patrons who desire to purchase books of tickets for stalls and pit stalls may obtain them in books of twelve at the substantially reduced fee of 7s G3 and 5s respectively at the hall. The ordinary prices of admission will be the popular 9d (stalls), 6d (pit stalls, and pit (3d). A strong holiday pro- gramme has been booked for holiday week, particulars of which will be given next week.
