Cinema-television: the electronic big screen

This new section (still in the first stages of construction) will trace the development of the idea of the use of television for public performance. 
        The idea has a long history. Indeed, many of the first thoughts about moving pictures in the nineteenth century were built around live television projection rather than pre-recorded film.

Chronology of cinema-television to 1964
