When photographing these theaters, Nandita Raman was drawn to the anomalies and oddities- the unique chairs, the custom details, the juxtaposition of new and old, the make-do feel of the place. -

#TurconiTuesday: Stenciling was another way of adding color to nitrate film in the early 20th century. Stencils of each frame would be made in different colors and then layered upon one another to create vibrant scenes found in fairy tales and magical stories.

Our After Bedlam series peaks with the Academy Award–winning screen adaptation of Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel, ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (1975). Jack Nicholson stars as the witty con man who finagles his way out of his prison work detail by convincing the guards that he is insane.

#TurconiTuesday: When Davide Turconi was creating his nitrate film collection, he made clippings from film prints—dividing the long lengths into sections of 2 to 20 frames. When he did this, he would do so in places where the films were already spliced—a term referring to when two different film strips are put together. This helps us learn about the splicing used in the early 20th century. -
