The Marietta Daily Times, November 18, 1905:
Picture Show
The Moving Picture Company, of Washington, D.C., gave an exhibition at the auditorium of the Y.M.C.A. building last evening.  It came here under the management of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Young Men's Christian Association.  A matinee is being given this afternoon and there will be a third performance this evening.
An audience of some proportions was present for the entertainment, which was received with demonstrations of marked approval especially by the younger element.
A good variety of pictures in colors were shown and they were accompanied by the noises accompanying a passing train, the running of horses, etc.  Some of the pictures were interesting and instructive while others were humorous.

Illustrated songs were on the program.  One of the company's men sang them.  He was assisted by a male quartet in a chorus and Miss Timblin played the accompaniments.
