FIRE BRIGADE PROGRAMME.
There was an excellent list of pic tui 93 sbown at the Oddfellows' Hall last Friday when the proceeds were in aid of the Fire Brigade funde. The ppecial fire films were : Fire in Auck land, Terrace Fire, Wellington, and a wonderful representation of that tragic fire of the Great Equitable Insurance Building, New Yoik, when the cold was £o intense that the water from the hoses was frozen as it fell. Of the other pictures "The Double Event" was the most thrilling. The adventures of the hero were full of interest from the time when he was wrongfully accused of the murder of his brother to the day when the win of Galoola gives him a fortune in Austrniia Many dramatic scenes were portrayed,, including the races won by Galoola. Other pictures of interest were : — "Chrysanthemuns" (a coloured film), "The Old Reporter" (drama), "The Artist's Joke," "Trafalgar and To day," "Bobby's Father," and an amusing comic in which Bunny figures, called "Bunny All at Sea." Miss Doris Hay<vard played the first part of the pic'ures, and Mr Will Williams, late of Pollard's Pictures, play- , ed for the second half.
We believe the nett proceeds from the concert were over £6.
