Cyclorama at the Mack Sennett Studios, Los Angeles, 1926

Cyclorama at the Mack Sennett Studios, Los Angeles, 1926This is the cyclorama at the Mack Sennett Studios in 1926. It’s a huge drum that spins around and around. The actors pretend to run or ride prop horses on the same spot while the cyclorama with its wild country backdrop painted on it turns around. This gives the illusion to the moviegoer that the actor is moving, not the background. Ah, movie magic!
