AT THE THEATERS
What the Press Agents Szy.
"Quo Vadis?" at the Columbia.
When a plRy like "Quo Vadis?" at the
Columbia Theater, draws very large
crowds to every performance, there must
be something of more than usual interest
in the situation.
Just now the City of Portland Is in the
throes of a moral wave.
A general uprising against vice Is
spreading throughout this city.
"Quo Vadls?" shows the great moral
wave of Christianity that dominated old
Rome at last.
"Quo Vadls?" the great play running
this week at the Columbia Theater, Is
the strongest Imaginable picture of Roman
times under the brutal despot Nero, when
the early Christians were persecuted and
put to death for their faith In Christ. It
shows how the early martyrs were
strong enough to withstand the power of
the great Roman civilization. It makes
you understand how the Christian relic.
Ion started in its Irresistible growth over
the world. The splendors of tottering
Rome are depicted in magnificence su
It is a great play grandly produced.
The scenic effects and costuming are be
yond anything that has been seen here
In the past. The story is vastly dramatic
and Impressive. It is seldom that Port
land theater-goers have the opportunity
to see anything on the stage quite so
fine and beautiful never before at the
small prices charged at the Columbia.
Tho several members of the superb Co
lumbia company are wonderfully realistic
in their respective parts. The performance
is astonishingly good. It goes with a
whirlwind of dramatic intensity.
Naturally there are large crowds in at
tendance at each performance, so it is
well to secure your seats well ahead.
The great play runs until Saturday night
with the usual Saturday matinee.
