THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY MAY 14, 15 and 16 Ross Alexander and Anita Louise in— "BRIDES ARE LIKE THAT" Cute and clever, this spicy and snappy comedy-drama. It is Ross Alexander's first starring picture and he certainly does real well. Here is a film that the young folks will go for in a big way. It's great for the young couples—so bring your girl friend or boy friend. Selected Short Subjects— Charley Chase in "Vamp Till Ready", the best comedy he has made to date. Also "Run, Sheep, Run", a beautiful technicolor cartoon. SUNDAY AND MONDAY MAY 17 and 18 Margaret Sullivan, Henry Fonda and Charles Butterworth in— "THE MOON'S OUR HOME" "The Moon's Our Home" should not be missed! May Photoplay gives it a "Six Best" and a recent Liberty Magazine gives it a "three star" rating. It's packed with comedy: Charles Butterworth sees to that; and romance. Like "Brides Are Like That", it's a great show for the young people and people who want to stay young. Also—"Somewhere in Dreamland", one of the season's most beautiful color cartoons, and "The Yacht Club Boys" in fifteen minutes of song and comedy. Sunday Matinee at 2:30 o'clock TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY MAY 19 and 20 Little Jane Withers in— "GENTLE JULIA" There's little-to choose between Shirley Temple in "Captain January" and Jane Withers in "Gentle Julia." There's a swell love story with Tom Brown and June Lang. Also—A two-reel musical revue: "Roof Tops of Manhattan" and "Vaudeville Headiiners", a fine vaudeville show.
