Building Up and Demolishing the Star Theater (1901) – Frederick S. Armitage

Time-Lapse footage of the demolition of New York’s Star Theater at Thirteenth Street and Broadway. This was filmed from the Biograph Studios office accross the street, with exposures taken every 4 minutes during daylight hours over the course of the 30-day demolition. The film was then reversed to create the “building-up” effect. Theaters were given the option of setting the film order to either Build Up then Demolish, or Demolish then Build Up.

Music performed by Billy Duncan for Change Before Going Productions.
