The management of the Coronet Theatre, in its usual enterprising manner, screened yesterday Charles Darrell's famous melodrama 'When London Sleeps' in four parts. The film version of this drama, which had been performed in almost every town in the British Isles, closely follows the story of the play and is splendidly produced. The programme of pictures yesterday was well selected, for besides 'When London Sleeps,' there was a Keystone comedy 'The Great Vacuum Robbery,' 'The Broken Train' and the British Gazette, depicting the home-coming of the victors, elephants doing their bit for the Liberty Loan and Uncle Sam's troops leaving for home.
