The Ancient World Flashed on Screen at Warner Theatre

At the Warner Theatre on Broadway at 51st Street, Messmore and Damon are presenting a spectacle which they call “World a Million Years Ago”. It was a feature of the Chicago World’s Fair and has been brought intact to New York.

Messmore and Damon have undertaken in this unusual production to picture the earth’s surface and the creatures thereon throughout a period of many millions of years. They have assembled all the life of the sea, earth and air, both animal and plant form, of the sixteen periods of the five various ages into which scientists have divided the development of the earth’s surface. The presentation is made with reproductions created after scientific reconstruction of all the animals and plant life now extant.
