    The earliest hollywood cinema movie cameras were strapped immediately on to the mount of their tripod or alternative support, with only the crudest kind of levelling equipment provided, in the manner of the still-camera tripod heads of the hollywood period. The original film cinema cameras were thus effectively motionless during the course of the shot, and therefore the very first camera movements were created by fixing a camera on a moving car. The earliest documented, well before cinema or hollywood, of these was movie shot by a Lumire cameraman from the back platform of a train departing Jerusalem around 1896, and by 1898 there were ,amy more cinema movies shot from moving vehicles, Hollywood was beconing. Although categorised under the general heading of -panoramas- in the sales catalogues of the time, those movies shot directly forward looking out from the front of a railway engine were specifically described as -phantom rides-.

    Back in 1897, Robert W. Paul inventeed the original notable rotating camera mount manufactured to be placed 1on top of of

    on} a tripod, so that he could follow the passing parade of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in one uninterrupted cinema shot. The attachment had the camera set on a vertical setting which was moved using a worm gear driven by rotating a handle, so Paul distributed it on public sale the subsequent year. Movies made with such a “panning” head were also referred to as -panoramas’ in hollywood listings of the very first decade of cinema.

    The standard pattern for early movie studios in Hollywood was provided by a studio that Georges Mlis built in mid- 1891. The studio had a glass roof and three glass walls constructed after the model of vast studios for regular photography, it was also fitted with thin cotton cloths that were stretched below the roof to diffuse the bright ray of the sun on sunny mornings. The delicate overall light devoid of real shadows that this construction produced, and which also exists naturally on moderately overcast mornings, was to become the standard for cinema film lighting in hollywood movie studios for the next few years.

    Unique amongdt all the short hollywood cinema movies shot by the Edison studio, that recorded parts of the shows of variety performers for its Kinetoscope cinema viewing machines, was The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots. This depicted a person adorned as the queen putting her head on the execution block in front of a small group of bystanders in period dress. Desperate for internet surfers searching for cinema or hollywood, then consider purchasing for cinema, cinemas, watch movies, hollywood and hoyts optimised traffic.

    CANNES – A documentary using small clay figurines to tell the story of how Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh’s family perished under the Khmer Rouge regime won the top prize in the second most important competition at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

    L’Image Manquante (The Missing Picture) was among the 18 films that premiered in the Un Certain Regard category that was set up to encourage emerging and innovative filmmakers and run alongside the main competition at the world’s top film festival.

    Panh, 49, a prolific filmmaker whose films concentrate on the brutality in Cambodia when an estimated 1.7 million people were killed during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime, said the prize was important for his country.

    For a country that has emerged from its difficulties and years of war, it is important to say we are still alive,” Panh told Reuters after receiving his award at a red carpet ceremony in the French Riviera resort.

    The jury led by Danish director Thomas Vinterberg, whose film Jagten (The Hunt) won Mads Mikkelsen the best actor award at Cannes last year, described the documentary as one of the most powerful films I have seen in many years”.

    The runner-up was Omar by Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, a political thriller involving Palestinians living under Israeli occupation in which a young baker, Omar, is tortured by Israel’s secret police to betray his friends.

    Omar, which was shot in the West Bank and Israeli-Arab town of Nazareth last year, received a standing ovation at its premiere as the first film fully funded by the Palestinian cinema industry.

    It is the only festival that I think still cares about different films,” said Abu-Assad, known for the 2005 award-winning film Paradise Now, as he received his award.

    Another director in Un Certain Regard to get a standing ovation was Iran’s Mohammad Rasoulof who was jailed in 2010 for anti-regime propaganda but came to Cannes this year with Manuscripts Don’t Burn, shot in secret in his home country.

    The non-professional actors of La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Cage), a film about three young Guatemalans trying to cross the Mexico-U.S. border from director Diego Quemada-Diez won an award for best cast.

And once more, bulk is a problem, because you will be unlikely to fit a lot of chairs into the limited quantity of space that you have. Furthermore if you’d like to gather relations & friends round for movie nights and big sporting events, the very last thing you should do is to ask people to sit on the ground.

    You can find nowadays another choice – simply purchase the exact seats you sit on in the local cinema! There are several benefits to this. You’re able to fit a lot of these home cinema chairs in a comparatively small room. Organizations that sell these chairs additionally make available design and installation services, therefore they’ll tell you how many that you can fit in your home cinema space, and will install them for you.

You’re even able to buy factory refurbished cinema seats which have previously been installed in multiplexes at considerable mark downs, from under 100 per chair. Envisage having the ability to kit out a ten-seater home cinema and spend lower than 1000 on home cinema seating.

    No new technology or device can replicate the joy of watching a movie on a 70mm screen. The silver screen not only lights up a dark theatre but also brings new light to many peoples life. In India, there is a frenzied craze for movies. When a Shah Rukh Khan or a Rajnikant film brings a larger than life character on screen, the four corners of the country unite to cheer them. If cricket is considered the religion of India, the Indian film industry is definitely the heart of all Indians! With the advent of newer technologies, the joy of watching movie has increased manifold. Multiplexes have not only dotted the metropolitans but have also ushered in new aspirations and spirit into many second tier cities. Dehradun is one such city which got a new lease of life with the advent of multiplex cinemas such as PVR.
    PVR (Priya Village Roadshow) Cinemas is the largest cinema chain in India having its presence in many cities across the country. PVR Cinemas started the first multiplex in the country in Saket, Delhi thus bringing in a paradigm shift to the film viewing experience. Over more than a decade of its existence, the growth of PVR Cinemas has been exceptional and it has redefined movie watching with high class seating, state-of-the-art screens and audio-visual systems. A quick search on Dehradun business listings shows that the Himalayan city has two PVR theatres- Glitz Cinema and SilverCity. Both the movie theatres have raised the benchmark of movie theatres in Dehradun.
    The rise of new age cinema theatres is the result of the growth of Dehradun real estate. After it became the capital of a newly formed state craved out of Uttar Pradesh, Dehradun became the epicenter of development in the higher ranges of the Himalayas. Because of its proximity to Delhi, Dehradun has fast experienced change in the form of more investment in real estate, in IT, education etc. Dehradun schools were always known for their standard and excellence and with newer players entering the market, the competition just got stiffer. Due to all these reasons, jobs in Dehradun also saw an up rise with more and more youth staying back home. The result of the growth of Dehradun real estate has also been the growth of malls and movie theatres- two of which are Glitz Cinema and SilverCity.
    Both the PVRs boast of excellent infrastructure (something that is new to Doon) and both enhances the movie watching experience. While Glitz Cinemas is located in The City Junction Mall, Near ISBT, Haridwar Bypass Road, Dehradun, SilverCity is located in 542, Rajpur Road, Parsvnath Eleganza Mall, Dehradun.
    To get more information about movie timings, current shows, advance bookings you can visit the online repository on Dehradun- allindoon. From allindoon, you can not only get Dehradun business listings, but also know all about Dehradun schools, jobs in Dehradun etc. Check out other articles at .

    The period often correlated with modern Indian cinema is supposed to have begun in 1970’s when commercial cinema came forth as a means of recreation for the general public and this continues with the contemporary Indian cinema today. Although directors like Govind Nihilani, Shyam Benegal and others kept the flame of artistic movies alive, the commercial cinema surpassed the artistic cinema by leaps and bounds.

    The influence of mainstream movie industry kept on increasing in 1980s and 1990s. With the release of movies like Tezaab, Maine Pyaar Kiya, Kayamat se Kayamat Tak and Chandni in 1980’s and Darr, Baazigar and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in 1990’s, the trend of romantic cinema held ground. Such romantic movies told emotional love stories of young couples who after many adversities get married and stay happily ever after. Some of these romantic movies were very big hits and broke box office records.

    The trend of romantic Bollywood movies continued in late 1990’s and early 2000’s with the release of hugely popular movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Interestingly, the art cinema re-emerged by late 1990s as many movies including Traffic Signal, Chandni Bar and Satya received good critic reviews. These modern Indian movies were a refreshing change at the time when uninspired romantics were the order of the day and they proved to be memorable experience for the viewers.

    Numerous movies with big budgets including Veer and Mein aur Mrs Khanna were not well received, and surprisingly, DevD and other small budget movies have done well. This has lead to fresh and unique stories being favored among the Bollywood producers and directors.

    The present trend in the Indian movie industry is to try new themes and storylines. Movies like Three Idiots and My Name is Khan have experimented with new subjects and have been hugely successful. The modern Hindi movies are bringing in a fresh new experimental wave of cinema, which is being more than welcomed by the Indian cinema audience.

    Now available on Satellite TV Pay Per View Cinema, the same day its released on DVD, is the teen comedy 17 Again, starring heartthrob Zac Efron.

    In the movie, Efron plays Mike O’Donell, a high school basketball star who seems to have everything a college scholarship, popularity, and a beautiful girlfriend. But all of that changes when his girlfriend Scarlett reveals that shes pregnant. Suddenly all of Mikes aspirations are dashed and we fast forward twenty years later. Mike (now played by Matthew Perry) and Scarlett (Leslie Mann) are separated, and Mike is living with his software genius nerd best friend Ned (Thomas Lennon). We also learn that Mikes relationship with his own teenaged children is nonexistent, and his job is at a standstill. Praying for a change after he is passed up for a promotion, Mike meets a mysterious janitor who transforms him back to his glory days and suddenly Mike is 17 (and played by Zac Efron) again.

    Posing as a new student named Mark, Mike infiltrates his childrens school and learns things about them that he never knew. He also visits an unsuspecting Scarlett and rediscovers all the things that initially made him fall in love with her. Of course it should come as little surprise to anyone who watches movies that Mike will eventually learn some things about himself that will make him a better husband, a better father, and appreciate life as he never did before.

    I saw this movie initially when it was released to theaters in April and I remember thinking Cute, but I could have waited for DVD. Its chock-full of the stereotypes that weve come to expect in these teen comedies (the jock bully, the trio of cheerleader temptresses, the final showdown at the basketball game with that one chance to make the winning basket), but it still works, mostly due to Efrons charms. Now that he is stepping outside of the Disney mold, Efron is proving himself to be much more than just a pretty face. He shows some surprising dramatic chops here (most notably during the speech he gives to a judge in a courtroom at the end) and I think he has a long career ahead of him as an actor in more serious roles. Leslie Mann is somewhat underused, but she is still good here, and I always appreciate seeing her in comedies (she also appeared in The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and this summer’s Funny People.)

    I think Efron fans will be tempted to give this five stars before they even see it, but if other people give it a chance they will see there is a little more than meets the eye in Efrons talent. 17 Again had heart and it wasnt crass, and I think its a movie the whole family can enjoy. Sometimes a little sugary sweetness is actually kind of endearing.
