The Art Picture House.—Mr John Walters, the popular manager of the Art Picture House, has provided an ex- cellent attraction for Easter Monday and the two following days, with matinees on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 3 p.m. and nightly at 8 p.m. He has arranged a special booking of Cines great historical film, "The Last Days of Pompeii." The picture, which is some 7,000 feet in length and con. stitutes (with the exception of the popular Gazette), the entire programme is a most interesting one and has proved one of the most successful mov. ing picture plays ever produced, with its brilliant scenes of early Roman Life and the trialsof the Christian Martys, the Arenas, and surpt and moving story. It is to be hoped that no lovers of the pictures will miss this special Easter attraction, especially as we understand it is one of the most expen- sive pictures which has ever been shown in Wales. There will be a special Matinee on Easter Monday at 3 p.m. It will be noticed from our advertising columns that the Art Picture Hall will close on Saturday, April 18th, fori re- s noviation, etc., before the summer season comes on.
