The cinema has been providing unrivalled visual entertainment for a hundred years now, even since the idea to incorporate the relatively new technology of moving pictures into the theatre environment, which had already been used as a platform for entertainment for hundreds, if not thousands, of years.
Motion picture cameras were first invented in the 1890’s but the early films were far different from what we would recognise today as a blockbuster. They were typically less than 1 minute in length and it wasn’t until 1927 that sound was introduced to the films. The first cinema was the Nickelodeon, built in 1905 in Pittsburgh and as well as being used to screen the films of the time, people would often visit this movie theatre to watch newsreels to find out what was going on in the rest of the country, as well as the world.
