Grantham Journal (24/Dec/1927) - Oakham: Picture Theatre





A grand Christmas programme commences on Boxing-day, and continues throughout the week. For the first three days will be shown "Don Q, Son of Zorro," with Douglas Fairbanks in the chief part, a picture for everybody from seven to seventy, with no bar for anybody under or over those ages. Romance, a picturesque hero with ideals of the highest order, a beautiful heroine, and a wealth of fast and furious action with the true Fairbanks' dash — such is "Don Q." There will be a special afternoon performance on Boxing-day for children at 2.30, at special prices, when there will be lucky numbers, and many prizes will he given. Performances as usual in the evening. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday the principal picture will be "The Mountain Eagle," an unusual story, telling of the strange doings of the narrow-minded people of a mountain village who are led by a disgruntled man to wreak vengeance upon a man innocent of crime which he is said to have committed. There are snow scenes and fine mountain scenery in this thrilling picture.
