Exhibition of the Cinematograph

Note of first screening of cinematograph on 11 and 12 May in Town Hall by cinematographist Robert Calder.

"The scenes exhibited were most realistic - indeed, the exhibition requires to be seen to be credited. On the screen waves are seen dashing on the beach, boys bathing in the surf, trains rushing into the station, clowns "amusing" themselves, street scenes, &c., &c., all as if the actual scenes were before one's eyes."
