England's National Theatre, Drury Lane, is occupied by the cinematograph. The War Office recognized the cinematograph and allowed it to visit the seat of war. The earnings of English film actors in America can indicate the size and resources of the film business. With its scope, the dignity of the cinematograph has increased. And, in general, if the woodbine element must remain, to be controlled as best it may, the Havana element is steadily on the increase. Such an achievement as 'The Birth of a Nation,' which holds large audiences entranced for more than three hours at a stretch, is true Havanna. Gabriele D'Annunzio and J. M. Barrie have written for the cinematograph. – Times
