THE MOVING PICTURE WORLD January 2, 1915.

Who Started It?

Why the price of admission

should be raised by exhibitors is a question that is

now agitating the whole trade. All kinds of picture manufacturers are being interviewed on the subject, and they all seem to agree that

admission prices will have to go up, so that the exhibitor can shift part of his growing burden of expense onto the public.

Who started all this? Nobody

on earth but Carl Laemmle, president of the Uni- versal Film Manufacturing Company, in his "Straight from the

Shoulder Talks" which appear every week in The Universal Weekly, a 40-page maga- zine brimful of interest and HELP to exhibitors! He said weeks ago that all manufacturers would have to follow the lead of the Universal, and now it has come to pass!

Why doesn't every exhibitor

keep weeks and weeks ahead of time by studying the

Universal Weekly every week and getting the benefit of Mr.

Laemmle's experience and far-sightedness ? Do you know that no matter whether

you are using Universal films or not you are welcome to a three months free trial subscription to The Universal Weekly? Yes FREE\ All you have to do is to send the name and address of your theatre to the Editor of The Universal Weekly, sixteen hundred Broadway, in New York City. Do it this minute!

THE MOVING PICTURE WORLD

Universal Weekly News

A page of vitally Important news published by the Universal Film Mtg. Co., 1600 Broadway, New York, tor the Interest of all exhibitors

WEEK OF JAN. 2nd

NEW YORK CITY

1915

Do You Read The Universal Weekly?

If Not- Why Not?

If you are the type of Exhibitor who is keenly alive to every issue of the day in the Movie world, vou evidently read the UNIVERSAL WEEKLY every week. If you don't read it, you are missing out on the biggest and best things in the Film business. The Uni- versal Weekly is absolutely fearless and prints what other papers would hestitate about because of political situation that confronts them as regards their other advertisers. The Universal Weekly plays no favorites and tells the whole_ truth, without any mental quaking in the thought that advertising patronage might be lost through some seemingly undiplomatic statement. The truth hurts sometimes and that's why Film Trade Papers can't and won't print the whole news, inside facts, etc., that Ex- hibitors are keen to know. If you read but the one article each week, written by Carl Laemmle, President of the Uni- versal Film Mfg. Co., dealing with Ex- hibitors' problems in a straight from the shoulder way, you would be repaid fifty times over in the knowledge you would gain and the advantages that would be yours just from having the real inside dope from the biggest man in the business, and in advance of all other in- formation from all other sources. Carl Laemmle is one man in the film busi- ness who isn't afraid to speak his mind and this information is invaluable to wide awake Exhibitors who are striving for real success in the picture business. Each week the Universal Weekly is crammed chock full of good things for Exhibitors. It is edited in an admirable way and Exhibitors everywhere, irre- spective of whether they are using Uni- versal Service or not can gain immea- surable benefits by reading this bristling publication. Thousands of Exhibitors all over America watch eagerly each week for the arrival of the Universal Weekly. To thousands the Universal Weekly is a veritable bible, because it speaks the truth without fear or favor. If you are not getting a copy every week, you can be placed on the mailing list for 3 months free. Even if you had to pay $25.00 per year it would be dirt cheap, for the immense number of tips and valuable pieces of information you receive in the Universal Weekly each week.

To Exhibitors

If you desire to receive the Universal Weekly free for three months send in your name and address to The EDITOR of Universal Weekly, 1600 Broadway, New York, and we will place you on the list gratis for 3 months.

UNIVERSAL PROGRAMS FOR

1915 WILL LEAD THE WORLD

Vast Expen- ditures for Scenarios Players, etc. The Reason.

The year of 1915 will be a year of unending surprises for Universal Exhibitors, for we have plans under way, plus pictures stocked and to be programmed that will make Univer- sal Service the biggest thing in history.

We predict that before 1915 ends, there will be thousands of Exhibitors who are now hesi- tating about Universal Service who will be clamoring for it.

To those we wish to issue this timely warning. Better get in line now at the beginning of the year and start the new year right, and insure your business and profits for 1915. Better get set immediately so that at the end of 1915 you can say to yourself: "Well, I pulled a master stroke by tying up to Universal Service. . . . I am glad I didn't hesitate, but went to it r^ght." Thou- sands of Exhibitors who are now using split service will be using Universal Service exclusively before 1915 has passed. Better be one of them. You have the opportunity before you now.

MARY FULLER FEATURED IN "MY LADY HIGH AND MIGHTY"-2 REEL VICTOR-JAN. 11th

Some Reasons Why ''The Exploits of Elaine'' Is Truly the Biggest and Best Serial Yet

THE CAST: Noteworthy in every respect. Arnold Daly and Shel- don Lewis from the "legitimate," with Pearl White, the ruling favorite of the screen. Directed by Leopold Wharton, "the man who knows how."

THE STORY: Written by Arthur B. Reeve, the only man who can unite science with fiction in a detective story that would enthrall a stoic. Dramatized by Charles Goddard, the famous playwright.

THE PUBLICITY: The stories will be published as issued in the great Hearst newspapers as well as the leading paper in each city in the land. The "Craig Kennedy" stories have run for four years in the Cosmopolitan Magazine with its enormous circulation. All the value of that colossal publicity is behind these thrilling episodes in which "Craig Kennedy" is a leading character.
