From Kinetoscopes to Cellphones

Posted by


Thanks to technology, movie screens are getting smaller, just like they were in the the late 1890s when people went to arcades to watch kinetoscopes. But does anyone REALLY use their cellphones to watch movies?

“The time is coming when the moving picture and the phonograph will be combined so naturally that we shall be able to show a trumpeter or any other musician so lifelike in appearance that when he puts his instrument to his lips it will be impossible for any one to say positively that it is not the real man who is playing.” –Thomas Alva Edison
