The Birthplace of Talking Films

In 1923, Theodore Case of Auburn, New York, invented the first commercially successful system of recording sound on film. He invented the system in his backyard greenhouse, which he called the Case Research Lab. His Movietone sound system revolutionized the movie business. His lab was restored and reopened to the public in 1994 as the Case Research Lab Museum.
