See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reports here from Egypt indicate that Ufa, Germany’s largest moving picture company, is exhibiting German pictures there at cut rate prices to overcome the anti-German boycott.

Supporting the boycott stressed by the Jewish community, large moving picture company, is exandria refused to buy pictures made in Germany. Upon instructions from Berlin the Ufa agent rented a second class picture house with a seating capacity of 500 which so far has presented only pictures previously exhibited in the larger theatres. While the big houses charge one and two shillings for admission, the Ufa asks only five and seven pennies.
