HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE
A large and delighted attendance witnessed the screening of the new programme of pictures at His Majesty's Theatre on Saturday night. Much was expected of the star subject, "The Frozen Warning," and expectations were fully realised. The .story dealt chiefly with a conspiracy to steal a newly-invented device for combating the German submarine menace, the plot being cleverly frustrated by the heroine, but apart from the melodrama the production was of more than usual interest. The leading role was taken by Charlotte, one of the word's greatest ice-skaters, and during the progress of the story several .scenes in some of America's famous rinks were introduced, showing the heroine in a series of skating turns. The graceful manner in which she performed fancy figures and pirouetted on the tip of one skate, twirling like a top, aroused much enthusiasm, her clever exhibitions certainly demonstrating 'her right ,to be heralded as . one of the most spectacular ice skaters in the world. Another feature of the production was the picturesque nature of the settings and the excellent photography. This picture should prove a strong "drawing card" when screened for the second and last time to-night. The supporting subjects were a topical series and the third episode in the "Scarlet Runner" serial, which is - being followed with considerable interest. .Reggiardo made his final appearance in a series of juggling and sword swallowing feats which sustained the attention of the onlookers.
