Cultura de la Pantalla en Monterrey (1895-1972)
This project focuses upon the history of film exhibition, programming and cinema going experiences in Monterrey, Mexico, the third largest city in the country. Methodologically it is a replica of the Enlightened City project (Flanders, Belgium), applying a triangulation of methods around a cartography of cinemas in Monterrey (cf. database on venues, people and exhibition companies); an analysis of film programming (1922 to 1972, sample year per decade); and oral history on audience’s remembrance of film consumption habits in Monterrey (1930-1972).
The project has not received any external funding. Faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students of the communication programs at Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM), México, have worked in the project on a voluntary basis.
