Over our 40 years in business we have accumulated roughly 5,000 titles dating from the first primitive films made by Lumiere in 1895 to contemporary animation efforts made in the 1980s. We constantly acquire new titles for our collection!
We carry almost everything the instructor of a FILM HISTORY course would need from A TRIP TO THE MOON, through GRIFFITH, KEATON, CHAPLIN, SENNETT, ROACH, LINDER, LLOYD, CHASE, McCAY, COCTEAU, LANG, LUBITSCH, HITCHCOCK, CAPRA, etc.
Rarely seen titles, including: L'AGE D'OR (Bunuel), THE WANDERING JEW, a very complete tinted and toned version of D.W. Griffith's INTOLERANCE, Fritz Lang's M with the original ending (personally selected by the director for PBS TV airing), etc.
Landmark women directors including ALICE GUY-BLACHE, LOIS WEBER, GERMAIN DULAC, LOTTE REINIGER and MAYA DEREN.
Landmark black films including a wide variety of musical subjects (BESSIE SMITH, DUKE ELLINGTON, CAB CALLOWAY, BILLIE HOLIDAY), films of OSCAR MICHEAUX and PAUL ROBESON, early primitives from the EBONY FILM COMPANY, etc.
