This is the first of several references to movies in the Fountain Square Conversations. Miles seems to have taken a keen interest in the new medium. In her journal entry of May 26, 1914, she mentions: "Ate sandwich for my supper, in the moving pictures." She even seems to have briefly tried her hand at scriptwriting after she quit the News at the end of July, 1914. The Theato, Chattanooga's first theater devoted solely to showing films, had opened on July 11, 1906. By 1914 the new medium, bolstered by the success of twelve-reel (or feature-length) films, had begun to supplant vaudeville performance as a favored form of popular entertainment. The prices were 10 cents for adults and 5 for children, explains Miles' subsequent reference to "a heap of nickels."
