From the beginnings of cinema through the first boom in the specialized moving-picture theaters known as nickelodeons, The Emergence of Cinema looks at the first twelve years of projected motion pictures and their aural accompaniment. Early American cinema is examined as an industry and as an influential cultural practice in the context of a centuries-long history of projected images.
