Projectionist: Another indicator for the former cinema of attractions were Projectionist. This offered a variety of additional services such as sound effects and pronounced comments. It was also true demonstration events, reminiscent of the attractions of a fairground. The presentation of the films presented itself was already an attraction reprentation. One particularly admired the machines shown there, rather than the movies. So you also attracted to the posters but not with the film titles with the name of the projection machine, for example, the biographer of the Cinematograph. So also own cinematographic manipulations like slow motion, reverse, etc. made ​​from the fascinating and interesting. The effect of magnification, the close-up, was not used to the narrative punctuation, but was an attraction in itself. See Cinema of Attractions for additional information.
