The origins of motion picture technologies are described and analyzed by Charles Musser in this lavishly illustrated volume. He considers social and economic as well as aesthetic aspects of the beginnings of movie making.

From the beginnings of cinema through the first boom in the specialized moving-picture theaters known as nickelodeons, The Emergence of Cinema looks at the first twelve years of projected motion pictures and their aural accompaniment. Early American cinema is examined as an industry and as an influential cultural practice in the context of a centuries-long history of projected images.
