PAST PRO­JEC­TIONS

Pasatiempo - - SANTA FE GOES TO THE MOVIES -

With the in­ven­tion and rapid de­ploy­ment of the Lu­mière Ciné­matographe pro­jec­tor and Edi­son’s Vi­tas­cope af­ter 1895, movie the­aters and im­pro­vised screen­ing au­di­to­ri­ums rapidly spread across the United States. The May 5, 1907, “New Mex­i­can” re­ported that “Manager A.M. Det­tle­bach of the (Santa Fe) Opera House was busy to­day in­stalling an ex­ten­sive Edi­son mov­ing pic­ture ma­chine which he re­ceived yes­ter­day from the fac­tory. It is of the very lat­est model and rep­re­sents an in­vest­ment of $175.”
