History of Motion Picture Film and Projection

The ins and outs of how movies were shown for more than 100 years; the various film formats from the late 1800s, to the change over of aspect ratios to wide format projection, to the use of safety film and the types of lights now used to create the colors on the screen, carbon arc, Xenon arc and now digital cinema projection with laser light sources and DLP technology.

Also the transition from silent to film. The first sound. Sound on disk, sound on film, variable density sound track vs variable area sound tracks to SDDS Sony Digital, Dolby Digital and the first digital DTS, sound on CD.

Splicers lenses reels and actual 35 mm and 70 mm domed Imax film samples will be on display.
