    Regarding photo ND-3-1642. There was a silent movie, “The Country Cousin” starring Elaine Hammerstein, which was released in November 1919. It appears that would be the film showing and not the 1936 Disney Version. See: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0010025/ for more information on the film. Additionally, the image of the 1920 building of the Empire Theater and the 1921-1922 interior images suggest another theatre building. My grandmother played in the Dillingham production of “Chin-Chin” January 1-3, 1920 at the Empire Theatre in Edmonton.
