Take a trip down memory lane to the past where films are screened in black and white with your very own Mechanical Vitascope model!
Dating back to 1890s, this 172-piece projector model has a cinematic bulb that lights up a short film once you start rotating its hand crank.
Powered solely by kinetic energy, no batteries or any external power source is required to cast your very first short film!

Get hands-on with the physics of light projection - Experiment with adjusting the focal lengths, and how the clarity of an image gets adjusted. Understand first hand how a system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.
Includes a cinematic short film of a Chaplin's classic 'Modern Times' - Once your vitascope projector is assembled, simply load up the film, start projecting and enjoy!
No batteries or electrical source required for image projection - Simply rotate the hand crank mechanism to power up the cinematic bulb of your assembled Vitascope, and watch your motion picture come alive!
