OTD February 26 - Kinemacolor
24 / 33
National Media Museum

1909: Kinemacolor, the first successful color motion picture process, is first shown to the general public at the Palace Theatre in London. The two-color additive color process photographed and projected a black-and-white film behind alternating red and green filters, but proved to costly for theaters to adapt and fell out of favor by the end of 1914.
