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.
