The film playing at the theater is "Ingagi" (1930), a hoax of a film that purported to be authenitic footage of Congolese peoples sacrificing a white women to an ape. Many believed it at first, but it was soon revealed to be a cheaply-made horror film, filmed entirely in California. The current films were Ingagi the gorilla; Terrible Toledo: a Disney Silly Symphony; Young Eagles, and Buster Keaton's Free and Easy. The theatre was open from the 20s to the late 40s.
