Exhibitor in South Wales, c.1917

In May 1917, Miss N. Paynter was interviewed by the Kinematograph and Lantern Weekly. The trade paper commented that she was “one of the most popular manageresses in South Wales”, whilst it reported that, on the question of entertainments tax, Miss Paynter “thought that it was extremely unfair that the greatest burden of tax should fall upon the working men – at least, those patrons of the lowest-priced seats. She opined that the levying should have been proportionate all round, from the best priced seats to the lowest”.
