This entry comes with images already installed, because without them, the text won't make much sense.

I thought it might be fun to try to imagine what it was like to be an audience member in the days of blockbuster live-action science fiction. In 1905.

It's not any sillier than most of the movies at the multiplex. And the snacks were probably better.

This is fascinating, and great to see in Peer Review - I enjoy seeing documents from the archives, and you have gathered them together well. I think you've done a good job of explaining the images, too, so that the Entry makes sense even if people can't see them smiley - ok

I like how the programme included details of the show's sponsors smiley - ok

Footnote 2 is spot on smiley - laugh Dance of the Hours is in Disney's Fantasia so those lyrics have oft been sung in our house!

'pachydermic education' - now there's a phrase! smiley - laugh

Excellent concluding paragraph smiley - applause
