According to the Wed., Dec. 24, 1924, issue of the Steuben Farmers Advocate newspaper, the Babcock Theater would open Christmas Day (Thursday), 1924, with “7 Keith Big Time Vaudeville Acts.” The vaudeville had a 3-day engagement. On Friday and Saturday (Dec. 26-27), a movie program shared the bill: Colleen Moore in First National Pictures' FLIRTING WITH LOVE, and a “Larry Semon comedy.” The first film-only program followed Dec. 28-29 (Sun-Mon), Vitagraph’s swashbuckler CAPTAIN BLOOD starring J. Warren Kerrigan. There were no matinees on Sunday, but matinees at 2 and 4 PM on Monday. The newspaper story makes no mention of musical accompaniment.
