Before their were movies there were power point presentations. Including sound effects and orchestras...

The Magic Lantern is the forerunner of the modern slide projector. It has a long and complicated history and, like lots of fascinating inventions, many people were involved in its development. No one can say for sure who invented the Magic Lantern. It is part of the marvelous world of optical projection and stands alongside the Camera Obscura, Shadow Shows and the Magic Mirror. Like them the Magic Lantern has been used to educate, entertain and mystify audiences for hundreds of years.

Nice topic, Digger.  I remember my father having something like that when I was a kid.  He took lots of pictures and had them developed into slides. He would then put each one in a carousal container and attach it to the projector. Put up a big screen in the living room and we'd all look at the family photographs...

 

Brings back great memories.

 

:D

Yeah, me too.   :)

 

Of course, they were mostly just family pictures. Pretty boring stuff for people outside of the family. In the old days, before the movies, these kinds of 'movies' were quite popular.  Some of the projectors would allow for little movements within a frame. Nice effects to get a thrill for the audience. Some of those old shows were quite involved. 

 

Ever see one of those psychedelic shows from the 1960s?

Old fashioned hollywooded American history. A jaded forest of directed propaganda...
 
Hollywood has been portraying the great American ideal for over a century. All ideas presented to you full in the fACE on the screen. Big screens, little screens, screens in your living room, screen in your bathroom, screens everywhere.
 
How have the effects of the majickal lantern changed society and it's behavior?

I like anything old fashioned like this. It is a good topic!

Here's some more information on some old fashioned magic hypnotism!

 

Exhibit of Optical Toys

Long before the time of Disney and Pixar, artists made images move using a variety of -scopes and -tropes: gadgets like zoetropes (which means “wheel of life”), phenakistoscopes (“deceptive viewer”), thaumatropes (“turning wonder viewer”), and praxinoscopes (“action viewer”), to name a few. These so-called “optical toys” created the illusion of continuous movement by combining drawings, slits, and mirrors. Victorian audiences were transfixed.

Interesting thread!

Disney utilized the magic lantern technique quite well:
 
Explorations of Disney's Haunted Mansion. Ruminations and revelations concerning the history and artistry of the Disney parks' richest and most eccentric masterpiece. Based on the MiceChat discussion board phenomenon, "Long-Forgotten Haunted Mansion Effect."
