Abstract

This essay investigates the emergence of 16mm projectors and screens during the 1920s. By examining changes to the entertainment industry, the American home, and advertising discourses, it demonstrates that portable film technologies have long been implicated in a complex relationship with a range of automated consumer technologies and idealized private spaces.
