Before Video: A History of the Non-Theatrical Film

Synopsis

"Non-theatrical film" is the term used to describe motion pictures which are not shown in movie theatres, but are produced and/or distributed to markets that include the educational community, home, and business and industry. Slide covers the early Hollywood-produced features and short subjects in a format other than 35mm for homes, hospitals and correctional institutions, as well as industrial films. This is also the history of two major non-theatrical libraries, Bell and Howell and Kodascope, both of which were founded to service the needs of purchasers of the then newly introduced 16mm projectors.
