Intriguing silent movie etiquette slides reveal daily-life in 1912

We all love going to the movies, but it is a pity when this magical cinema experience is spoiled by others who do not care for etiquette. Back in 1912, however, when the movies were still silent, they knew how to deal with bad behavior in style! New York designers John D. Scott and Edward Van Altena created a series of slides in the early 1900’s that were a humorous visual guide for how to behave in the movies.

Those slides were put in fancy carved frames and shown in cinemas. This is how movie-goers got educated not to talk loud, wear huge hats, or just walk around in the middle of the film. Today, we still face similar problems with inconsistent behavior in cinemas. John D. Scott and Edward Van Altena show us how to deal with the problems in a communicative, yet entertaining way.
