PROJECTON OF COMIC CINEMA WITH LIVE MUSIC BY THE PIANIST PAUL PERERA.
Charles Pathé, who had set out to bring home cinema, created in 1922 a type of new format film - 9.5 mm - economical and profitable, which was projected with a device of such simplicity that it could be put on reach of all: the famous Pathé Baby. Dragged by hand, it stopped during the
reading of the titles, extending the duration of the screening.
Once the device was available, films had to be provided, which meant an important business of printing copies in 9.5 mm, for home use, of the films shot in 35 mm that were seen in the cinemas. Normally, they were short films, but there were also full-length films that were composed of several reels. The favorite subjects without a doubt were the comics. The American slapstick occupied a very important part of sales. Also the adventure films, divided into 'parts', liked the users. All this cinema, made the delight of many fans and was an entertainment for families who had it in their own home.
Today, we will see these films that are still having fun, with original format projection and accompaniment to the piano by Sergi Sirvent.
