Description "The first part comprised a Christy minstrelsy and variety show, furnishing some good and some not so good musical selections, funnyisms by the corner-men, terpischorean exhibitions by the ladies, and pedagraphy extraordinary by Mr. Mooney. Acrobat Ouda amazed with his 'high ladder' act. The farce - which was a farce - Put a Penny in the Slot - preceded the turning out of the lights and the turning on of the cinematographe."
