January 22, 2011

If you were in Washington, D.C. 100 years ago today, you would have been able to see On Kentucky Soil (Reliance, released on 14 January, 1911) at the Maryland-Virginia, “Washington’s finest appointed Photo Play Theater” located on 9th, between F and G.

“Night Brings the Stars and You” is the title of a popular song of the day, as is “When the Bells in the Lighthouse Ring.” Note how they get top billing over the title of the moving picture in this ad.
