The Devil in a Convent

This picture shows the interior of a convent looking toward the cloister, with church and churchyard in the background. In the foreground is a baptismal font, pulpit and chairs. A priest is seen kneeling in prayer and, upon rising, turns out the gas and retires. After he disappears, the devil jumps from the font of holy water amid a column of smoke and drops gently to the ground, using his large cloak as wings. An imp appears and Satan and follower are transformed into priest and choir boy, respectively. Ringing the bell and summoning the nuns to service is their next move. The nuns enter and seat themselves in the chairs in front of the altar. The devil in the guise of a priest preaches to them, but suddenly transforms himself to his natural self, frightening the nuns, who flee in terror. The devil then changes the column into the most grotesque figures, until the church resembles his own domains. Many imps appear at his command and dance around him. Ghosts o departed nuns suddenly appear and drive off all but Satan. A procession of priests, nuns and choir boys are seen approaching with the object in view of conquering the devil, which they fail to do. Suddenly an apparition of St. George appears and overturns His Satanic Majesty, who descends to Hades amid clouds of smoke. The object of the film is to illustrate the triumph of Christianity over Satan, and while it is quite fantastical and religious, there is not the least action in the film which would be obnoxious or shock the most sensitive audience.

Suddenly an apparition of St. George appears and overturns Satan who descends to Hades amid clouds of smoke. This film illustrates the triumph of Christianity over Satan. Truly a most beautiful conception.

El dueño del cinematógrafo instalado en la calle del General Chinchilla agradecido al mucho favor que le está dispensando el público todos los días y en vista de que son muchas las familias que reclaman poder ver el cuadro sacro "el demonio en el convento o el poder divino", ha dispuesto que hoy martes y mañana miércoles, día de Santiago, se trabaje el demonio en el convento y el maravilloso cuadro de 500 metros "Aladino o la lámpara maravillosa" por ser los dos últimos y definitivos días de permanencia en Pamplona.
