Between November 2014 and December 2015, we collaborated on building a 3D visualisation of Cinema Parisien, one of the first permanent cinema theatres in Amsterdam, established in 1910 by cinema owner and distributor Jean Desmet (1875-1956). The project aimed to investigate the affordances of 3D modelling for presenting digital cinema heritage in a comprehensive, evocative form. In addition, it explored the opportunities of 3D visualisation as a research tool for studying the history of cinema. In this presentation, we will demonstrate the final version of the model, explain the research and building process, and reflect on the relevance of 3D visualisation as a tool for the history of cinema-going.
