John Bunny “made 260 shorts with Flora Finch between 1910 and 1914, which were known as ‘Bunnygraphs’, ‘Bunnyfinches’, and ‘Bunnyfinchgraphs.'”
Moving Picture World, February 24, 1912:
“Of the three picture houses in Lawrence, Kan., the Aurora theater is said to be the finest. It is owned by Mr. Gibbons. The accompanying illustration shows the front of the Aurora billed for one of the Vitagraph ‘Bunny, Pictures and indicates that the proprietor is particularly enterprising when the question of publicity is considered.
The Aurora is fitted with a Mirror Screen and the current is supplied through a motor generator. The Aurora is not for its excellent projection.”
