Film Index, October 15, 1910:
“The Family Theatre is the newest and best picture theatre in Adrian, Mich., and its success, for the past two months that it has been running, has been so marked that plans have been already made to double the seating capacity.
“The manager, E. W. Simons, is an up-to-date hustler who always aims at the comfort and entertainment of his patrons. His service, which happily combines both quality and variety, is furnished by the National Vaudette Film Co. of Detroit, Mich.”
The poster is for A Fair Exchange, released by the Biograph Company on September 23, 1909. A one-reel eleven minute adaptation of Silas Marner, the film directed by D. W. Griffith, starred James Kirkwood and Mack Sennett.
He is available for theatre talks and walks in 2014–historical societies, libraries, senior centers, etc.
