Black ink drawing on paper shows a large group of people sitting inside a building. A film projector shows a movie on a small screen at top right in the distance.

"At eight o'clock it was still daylight. The sun shone brightly into the room and made the moving picture dim and formless. The idea of going to a show made us happy, even if we could not see the picture. The entrance fee was our mess card. Different nights were reserved for a different group of mess halls.
