Notes: There was a Mozart Theater on 11th Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, so this program may be from that theater.  It is unusual that a nickelodeon (5 cent theater) would have a program showing the whole week's films, and you can see that they didn't have the titles of all of the films from the exchange when the program was printed.  This "licensed" theater was showing films from the Patent Trust studios, and not from independent studios.  At this point in film history, most studios didn't release the actors' names, but this program lists the most popular Vitagraph and Lubin actors.  A "2 part" film means two reels, so about twenty minutes long.  Most of these films are one reelers, about 10-12 minutes long.
