Other films were"Cheobmated," "The Coastguard's Sister," "Labour Day in Auckland" and "Smashing Time." "QUO VADIS." The local management has secured the world-famed film '"Quo Vadie." Tbe picture is one tbat should be seen by all, for the etory in which Nero and his debased oourt are seen is vividly portrayed. The oolocr and incident in the magnificent banquet scenes are sufficient inducement alone to bring an audience, and in addition there are tbe great coliseum scenes and the pictures of the sufferings of tbe early Christian?. Through all runs the love stary of Lygia and the Roman youth of noble birth. 'J he scenes of the burning of Rome are shown with a startling vividness.
