_CHANGING THE WORLD ONE FILM AT A TIME ™
In the Golden Film Era the major motion picture companies had vast elaborate sets for film production. They owned their own film-exhibiting theatres as well as production and distribution facilities. They also distributed their films to a network of studio-owned, first-run theaters (or movie palaces). They required bookings of films, whereby theatre owners were required to rent a block of films (often cheaply-made B-pictures) in order for the studio to agree to distribute the one prestige A-Level Picture that the theatre owner wanted to exhibit. This technique set the terms for a feature film's production, release and patterns of exhibition; and guaranteed success for the studio's productions.
