SCOPITONES!

This screening is part of: MODS GO TO THE MOVIES: VEHICLE FILMS OF THE 1960s

Film Notes

Scopitones (pronounced Scope-a-tones) are one of the great lost gems of modern pop music and culture. Early 1960s precursors to today’s music videos, they were distributed on color 16mm film with a magnetic soundtrack, and made to be shown only on a Scopitone film jukebox. The first Scopitones were made in France around 1960, and the craze spread throughout Europe (particularly in West Germany and England) before crossing the Atlantic to the US in mid-1964. A few years later, Scopitones fell victim to bad luck, poor business decisions, and alleged Mafia connections. Most of the machines were destroyed but the films became highly prized by collectors. Bursting with bright colors, sexy babes, and hunky guys, Scopitones are an amazing time capsule of 1960s pop culture with a special focus on classic French ye-ye and Vegas lounge music. Thanks to the good graces of collector Gare B. Noir, who will present a selection of Scopitones featuring the likes of Procol Harem, Michael Polnareff, Francoise Hardy, Billy Lee Riley, and Gale Garnett, this evening will provide an opportunity to look back to an earlier era and a long-lost form of entertainment!
