The backbone of this database comes from a search of popular period journals, noting for entry any reference to the exhibition of American films in Canada. This information is supplemented by archival materials as they become available.PEOPLE, FILMS, & VENUES
Entries on people, venues and exhibition sites are drawn from a variety of sources, beginning with the periodical literature and archival documents but also including secondary materials and existing popular film databases. A full list of citations accompanies every entry.
In the long run, visits to a variety of local archives will yield a more complete picture of this form of entertainment—or, more correctly, a more complete set of materials from which a picture can be drawn.
