Scopitones! screens on the Town Hall Video Wall at the Artisphere
Wednesday, May 4th - Tuesday, May 31st

"Scopitones, also known as "film jukeboxes", were invented in France and constructed from surplus World War II airplane parts in the 1960s. The short films that played on them are the precursor of today's music videos. These videos of singing "idols, crooners and starlets" play in rotation on the Town Hall video wall in May."
