Great Drama of the Air to Show
at Colonial Four Days Next
Week. Picture Showier
First Time in South
"Wings”, proclaimed by press and
public as the greatest moving picture
of a generation, is scheduled for four
days shewing at the Colonial Thea
tre next week.
Milledgeville is the first town in
the south having the opportunity to
see this great picture. Released ear-
ly in the year, the picture has been
shown to packed houses in the princi
pal cities of the east and Manager
Curry secured the first showing of
the famous picture below the Mason
and Dixon line.
One of the most novel pieces of
advertising is being displayed in con
nection with the picture. A real
aeroplane has been designed and
mounted on a truck, carrying the
message of the approaching dates for
the showing of ‘‘Wings.’’ The plane
is a perfect model and has attracted
much attention. Manager Curry ex
pects to visit neighboring towns with
this novel idea.
“Wings” is a story of the war in
the air, featuring Clara Bow, Rich
ard Arlene, Charles Rogers and
Cary Cooper. It portrays the war in
realty. Thousands of dollars was
spent in its production and squard-
rons of aviation, infantry and tanks
and other implements of war were
used in the making. A year was
spent in producing it and the photo
graphic effect is wonderful beyond
words, according to press dispatches.
“Wings” has broken all records
for straight runs on Broudway and
thousands of people have flocked to
the theatre to see it. A few Mil
ledgeville people while in New York
have seen the great air story and have
recommended it to the Theatre goers
of this city.

water situation that has been the sub
