The Electric Cinema in London's Portobello Road was one of the first buildings in Britain to be designed to show movies when it opened in 1910.

It has remained in almost continual use until the present day and this short which is a trailer for the Electric Cinema chain is a star studded but humorous trailer asking patrons to refrain from smoking and keeping the noise down as well as highlighting the concessions stand and the lavatories.

I sometimes wonder if the trailer is funnier and more entertaining than the main feature film.
