Summary

There was a crowded house again last night at the Victoria Theatre to witness the latest Charlie Chaplin film, 'Shoulder Arms.' In this picture we have a combination of the usual comicalities of Chaplin combined with incidents in the trenches which give me a humorous idea as to what our 'Tommies' experienced at the Front. The management of the Victoria Theatre is to be congratulated upon its successful catering for public taste and is justly reaping the reward for its enterprise in the shape of full houses every night. 'Shoulder Arms' will be screened again today both at the matinee and the evening performance.
