There was a very large attendance at His Majesty's Theatre last evening to witness the screening of a fresh programme of films. '/Partners in Crime" was the chief attraction, but it was, practically the only one, for the supporting films -were, with the exception of a topical number, a rather poor lot. The "star" subject was really interesting, and' dealt in an absorbing man-, ncr with the operations of a gang of clever thieves; , The brains of the gang are centred in two prominent citizens, who, however, keep the fact of their connection with the gang an absolute secret from even the- members of their own families. The son of one is a newspaper reporter, who obtains the permission of his editor to help run the i criminals to justice. He is friendly with detective who is engaged by the Vigilance Committee to bring the gang to book, but'the newspaper man does not tell his father of his mission. He and the detectives have some thrilling brushes with the members of the gang, and they pursue one of the leaders in a motor-car, while he flies in another car to the reporter's home. Complications ensue, and there is-a climax of exciting incidents, round which is woven a charming love story. The gang is eventually captured. The other films screened were: "The Gaumont Graphic," "Beauty in a Seashell," "The Rose Carnival at Ohristchurch," "A Doll for Baby," "The Fickle Freak," "Too Much of a Good Thing," and "The Somnambulist.' The same programme will be screened again this evening. -
