HIS MAJESTY'S THEATRE.
The scenes in the star film screened at His Majesty's Theatre last evening were laid in America at the time of the War of Independence. It was entitled "Betsy Ross/' with Alice Brady in the title role, and unfolded the exciting love adventures of two sisters,, whose lovers laboured under the delusion that each had been guilty of murder. As the. story proceeded, it increased in interest, the closing scenes depicting the lady, who made the first flag containing the > stars: and stripes, dashing off in a gig which came to grief in a stream, and ultimately reaching the army barracks, on horseback, in the nick of time to save the life of her sister's husband, who had been condemned to death, being full of thrill and excitement. The supporting subjects were "Pathe. Gazette,", containing interesting views of General AJlenby's entry iuto Jerusalem, one of Dartmore's educational series dealing with water fowl, and a comedy entitled "Coys and Cussedness." * The programme will be repeated to-night. A special programme will be screened on Friday evening, and the proceeds will he handed over to the Returned Soldiers' Association.
