Early Entertainment Industry in Springfield

Early Entertainment Industry in Springfield

The people and technology forces of Springfield's early entertainment industry will be presented in an online video program. The Power Point presentation addresses everything from nickelodeons and Air Dome Theaters, to the fanciest movie houses and their attempts to stay relevant as consumer tastes, population shifts, radio, television and newer media technologies have eaten into the movie going audiences. It is a collaboration of the Society's researchers and writers. The program can be viewed on the Society's Facebook, YouTube and web page.
