More on Movie Theater
The feature film market finally established itself and in 1915 the release of The Birth of a Nation. A wide variety of theaters started popping all over the place. Mainly, these theaters designed themselves to be extravagant buildings, with beautiful architecture. Some of the themes went anywhere from Chinese themed theaters to just painting the sky on the ceiling. Even Egyptian styled and Persian themes were accepted to spice up the mood. These movie palaces were intended to create a atmosphere, and of course to attract customers from all over. During the Depression and World War 2, theaters had changed drastically due to low finances. They were decorated simply compared to the extravagant palaces of the 20s. Even the movies had changed from entertainment to information purposes. During World War 2, you could pay a couple cents on the dollar just to find out what was going on in the war and the world around it.Nowadays, there are really no unique theaters like the past offered. Now are mainly movie franchises that look pretty much the same. In spite of this though, the cinema has advanced greatly over the years and offers new technologies to make your movie experience better. Viewers may even be inside the movie one day.
