Eatonville Theater (1917)

Eatonville Theater was alive and well in 1917. The photos reads: L-to-R, Frank Van Eaton, Norma Norwood, Jackson Fairbann and Mack Van  Eaton. If someone could verify those folks, please let me know, because I don’t think that’s Frank Van Eaton.

Showing this night was A Romance of the Redwoods starting Mary Pickford. It was as silent movie directed, written and edited by Cecil B. DeMille. He directed over 70 movies, including Cleopatra (1934) and The Ten Commandments (1956).

Also playing is Sunshine Man staring Ann Pennington, who debuted in Ziefeld Follies in 1913.

I wonder if one of the five in this pictures was also the piano player for these silent flicks.
