The "star" ■film at His Majesty's Theatre last evening, when there was a complete change of programme, was a comedy entitled, "A Regiment of Two." Longing for a little recreation, unfettered with the restraints inseparable from domestic life, Wilton and his son-in-law scheme to obtain a night off once a week, pretending to. their wives that they have joined the 13th Regiment, and must drill every Friday night.. Suddenly the 13th Regiment is called to the front, and is cut to pieces, which "leaves the husbands. in a rather awkward position. However, they rise to the occasion, and returning home at once, tell a story of a marvellous escape. The story is full of fun. "A Canoe Race" gives a- realistic idea of this 1 hair-raising sport, and the ,pietiire is improved by the rapids providing the course being in a river with precipitous banks clad in beautiful scenery, with waterfalls and cascades leaping and tumbling down its verdant sides. "The Mistake" is a drama, the story being pitched in North America. "Round About Cairo" is a fine film, beautifully and naturally colored, and it is easy for the onlookers to imagine they are journeying through Egypt. "Two Little Kittens" is a fantastic little playlet in which a good deal of human nature is displayed; .while "Jean and Her Family" .animal study, a- fine collie bitch 'with seven little puppies are shown at various ages from a fortnight to three months old. The. programme ■ will be repeated to-night. ' - , .
