    • Abstract:
      The author says that the motion picture was a screen newspaper before it was a screen play, it recorded events before it began to invent them. But there is clearly a marked element of entertainment that distinguishes the motion-picture record from its analogue in the ordinary newspapers. Such an experience has now been made possible by the News Reel Theater which has recently opened in New York. The venture is no doubt timely and welcome. The material of the new theater is the familiar news reel of all the cinema houses, except that it is reinforced by the addition of sound.
