The kinetophone is Mr. Thomas A. Edison's latest invention. Hong Kong will be able to see it in the evening of the 23rd. at the Theatre Royal. He took a newspaperman to his experimental theatre and explained that the kernel was the absolute synchronisation of the movements in the motion pictures with the appropriate sounds. The sound was not metallic and offered a perfect illusion. The kinetophone is easy to be operated and it can catch the faintest sounds. A new style of a needle is used, and Mr. Edison feels assured that the kinetoscope will become immensely popular.
