Haggar's Coliseum/Palace

 
Haggar’s Coliseum, Aberdare
05.07.1913

A most pleasing programme of pictures is shown this week at the above delightful place of entertainment, which is being cooled during the hot weather by the electric fans installed in the building.

During the first three nights of the week, the star feature film was the great melodrama by the Nordisk Co., entitled “The Three Artistes.” It is a striking picture shown in three parts, which tells the story of cruel revenge conflicted upon a lady artiste by her jealous husband, who eventually meets his doom. By special request the film depicting the Aberdare Chamber of Trade outing as being shown, which is a quite true to life.

This (Thursday) night will be shown  for the first time the star film “King Baggot,”  in the new Magdalene adapted from the famous  novel by Wilkie Collins, Mr Cyril Yorke, the enterprising manager and guide, is well to the front with his witty explanations whilst Mt Tom Sage the accompanist, gives an able rendering of selections from the “Quaker Girl.”

The many patrons of this up-to-date and popular place of amusement have been well catered for this week with a splendid display of animated subjects that have been instructive, interesting and amusing.

The star picture for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday “The Incriminating Handkerchief,” was one that engrossed the attention of the audience from commencement to finish. Then again, “The Price of Gold,” was in every way realistic. The course subjects were all the very best and very well received each evening. For Thursday, Friday, and Saturday another grand programme has been arranged by Mr Haggar.

In addition to the usual programme for next week, Mr Haggar has secured at great expense two exclusive pictures, both dealing with recent events that have startled the civilised world. On is “An Ocean Catastrophe” viz., the great Titanic Disaster. All should pay a visit next week, and see what that man has not yet conquered the elements. “The Hardships of an Artic Expedition,” is a picture which shows what risks and what sufferings explorers undergo in order to further the course of science.

The entertainments commencing August 25th, will doubtless give general satisfaction, as no exhibition can place before the audience such wonderful subjects as the “Ocean Catastrophe” and the “The Hardships of an Artic Expedition”.
