The building once housed the Academy Little Theater, is a seat screening facility, but this was converted to additional office space in a building remodel.
Finally, inhe set up a battery of 12 cameras along a Sacramento racecourse with wires stretched across the track to operate their shutters. Because of the optical phenomenon known as persistence of visionthis gives the illusion of actual, smooth, and continuous movement.
The Grand Lobby Gallery and the Fourth Floor Gallery offered changing exhibits related to films, film-making and film personalities.
As photography was innovated and refined over the next few decades, it became possible to replace the phase drawings in the early optical toys and devices with individually posed phase photographs, a practice that was widely and popularly carried out.

GriffithWilliam C. The art of motion pictures is exceedingly complex, requiring contributions from nearly all the other arts as well as countless technical skills for example, in sound recordingphotographyand optics.
The use of brownish lighting, filters, and props, for example, has come to signify the past in films about American life in the early 20th century as in The Godfather  and Days of Heaven .
