Here is a blurb from the Englewood Economist in February 1915:

BONITA THEATER

Manager Frank Clifford has arranged an especially attractive list of selected pictures for the Bonita this week starting tonight, Monday, Feb. 15th, the program is as follows: “The Flower of Faith,” a fine 2 act Selig drama; “The Broken Circuit,” a thrilling drama of the rails, featuring Helen Holmes, also “Making Them Cough Up,” and “Bertha, the Button Hole Maker,” two laughable Biograph comedies.
