Recorded on September 13, 2017

As we approach the 125th anniversary of people paying to watch movies, Mark Schubin, who has been working in the field for 50 years, takes us on a quick journey from seemingly undirected early “actualities,” through a century of innovations, to some possible futures for the field.  Can two people see completely different things in the same image?  Why does a cinema viewer’s attire matter?  Is there a correlation between ticket price and enjoyment?  Watch and find out!
