Comfort Film Presents: Scopitone Party 2

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Comfort Film in conjunction with the Vernacular Photography Festival at Comfort Station presents:

Scopitone Party 2

We will screen a collection of Scopitone music videos from the 60's from the collection of Nicholas Osborn. Projected by a 16mm magnetic film projector.

About Scopitone:
Scopitone is a type of jukebox featuring a 16 mm film component. Scopitone films were a forerunner of music videos. The Italian Cinebox/Colorama and Color-Sonics were competing, lesser-known technologies of the time.

Based on Soundies technology developed during WWII,
color 16 mm film clips with a magnetic soundtrack were designed to be shown in a specially designed jukebox.

With pre-screening music provided by The Windy City Soul Club.
