120 Years of Watching Movies Together

"Ladies and gentlemen, come and dream with me." Just yesterday we featured a montage from the American Film Institute looking back at 120 years of film history. In fact, this year it will have been exactly 120 years since the Lumiérè brothers screened the first commercial film images. And since this year marks another decade milestone in filmmaking and cinema itself, the folks at Tandem Entertainment put together a little tribute to cinema, running through the magic of movies. What makes this a wonderful retrospective is the cutting back and forth between films and footage of characters in movie theaters. Watch!

Here's 120 Years Watching Movies Together from Tandem Entertainment (via The Playlist):

Tandem explains, "On the 28th of December, 2015, it will be 120 years since the Lumiérè brothers screened first commercial film images. So, we can say that that occasion was the beginning of movie theaters, the birth of the most emblematic location for all of us who love cinema. It is for this reason that Tàndem wants to pay tribute to this place where we discovered the magic of cinema and, above all, we have shared it. Furthermore, who better to pay tribute to movie theaters than films themselves." And yes, that's John Williams' Jurassic Park score piece "Journey to the Island" running throughout. Aren't the movies grand?

Yes, everyone will have opinions that may cause arguments on these forums and comment sections, but we all agree that watching a film in a theater on a massive screen is one of the best experiences in entertainment. It's the one thing that can bring haters and movie-lovers together.
