Peter — Isn’t this from 1922 (since they’re showing “Nanook of the North”)?

Hi Ross,

Unfortunately, we don’t have the original film where maybe we could check the date code to better identify. The town archivist got the tape that contained it a while ago and said that it’s from 1926 (there was other footage unrelated to the theatre that he was able to date it as such). Remember that the Lafayette didn’t open until 1924 in any case, so Nanook had to been playing on a return engagement of some sort.
