Intermission Time

Today, intermission time is a big business for sporting events, concerts, and Broadway shows. The venues use this valuable time to make some extra money at the concession and merchandise stands. But in the early days of film, intermission time was a necessity. The industry started to produce longer movies, taking up two film reels. Movie theaters had to take an intermission to change the film reels. In 1957 an animated short, Let's All Go To The Lobby, was created to drive up sales at the snack bar. Technology advanced and the need to change reels is almost a thing of the past, thus ending the time of intermission time.

Let’s take a look at some intermission time films...

Don't you think life would be little easier if we all took some intermission time during the day?
