A Columbia Kinetoscope.
Paddywoo98Added by Paddywoo98

The Kinetoscope is a silent movie device found throughout Columbia that was created by Fink Manufacturing. Each one provides a unique, 30-second silent film with music in all of them. They are considered a collectable in BioShock Infinite. Kinetoscopes are largely propaganda used by Columbia. Using them all is required to unlock the "Sightseer" Achievement/Trophy.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The real life Kinetoscope, also called the Kinetograph, was devised by William Kennedy Laurie Dickson under the supervision of Thomas Edison and and publicly released in 1894. Although Edison had the technology to synch sound to film, similar to how it's presented in the game, Edison decided against doing so with his kinetoscopes and film would remain silent until the late 1920s.
  • One Kinetoscope in The Columbian Archeological Society says "Magical Melodies, Sweet Columbia", but the title of the actual film is "Magical Melodies Sweep Columbia".
  • The music used in the kinetoscopes is by Sigmund Krumgold, Lew White, Jesse Crawford, and Eddie Dunstedter.
