Now get ready for this!
The American Mutoscope and Biograph Company, the oldest movie company in America (established in 1895), has signed a distribution deal with Strom Magellan to release “Mutoscopes” worldwide.
In case you didn't know (and I bet you didnt'), "Mutoscopes" are short films originally produced 100 years ago by the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company. Now, the oldest is the newest popular form of wireless entertainment.
The initial lineup includes films that are far from anyone's first-run list. Originally produced by the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company in the early 1900s, the "Mutoscopes" were entertaining two- to three-minute films exhibited in "Mutoscope" peep-hole arcade machines, where you put a nickel in, turned the crank, looked through the viewer and watched a short film. Today, the viewer is a cell phone or other wireless device.
Also (and why not?) new “Mutoscope” films are in production -- comedies, drama and action.
