Motion Pictures (chapter 7) The History of Motion Pictures  The basic principle of silver nitrate photography (still photographs) was discovered in 1727.  Actual motion was not captured on film until 1872 (Muybridge). o IN 1878, Muybridge produced his first famous series of horse pictures. o Practical film technology wasn't developed until 1888.  The French were the first to show a film for entertainment (and monetary) value in 1895. o This was made possible by the Lumiere brothers. o They invented the cinematograph, which allowed multiple people to see movies on a large screen o The first public movie theater was opened in 1896 (Melies)  Films were largely considered scientific curiosities in the U.S. until well after 1900. Why? o because of the horse argument  Narrative film making rapidly popularized movies.  The first narrative films were produced in the early 1900's in the US  In 1914, the first "Movie Palace" was opening in the US o Large, full- time single screen movie theaters o Designed to make audiences comfortable (as opposed to previous "nickelodeon" theaters)  One of the most influential early American actors was Mary Pickford o She was so popular that producers had to pay her higher and higher salaries. o In 1919, she formed United Artists, along with Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, and others o UA was the first movie company formed by actors  Sound came to movies in 1927 The Attendance Peak & What Happened Next  1946 was the movie attendance peak  Why did the (relative) popularity of movies decline after that time? o Post WWII "Baby Boom" means families move to the suburbs  Families have less money  Few money theaters in the suburbs  The anti-communist "witch hunts" of the 1940's and 1950's give Hollywood a bad name  The arrival of popular TV in the 1950's gives movies a serious competitor.  The invention of VCR's in the 1970's means you don't have to go to the theater anymore  Attendance hit a low point in the late 1960's and has stayed steadily low since  And yet movies survived o Movies are a bigger business than they were before all these things
