The Little Theatre began in the late 1920s as a link in a proposed chain of small theaters designed to provide an "intimate" alternative to the large commercial movie houses of the day. The Little Cinema Movement, which was dedicated to showing "art films that appeal to the intelligent and sophisticated," started in 1925. When it opened in 1929, The Little Theatre was the fifth "little temple of the cinema" to be built. The Little Cinema Movement represented a response to the mass merchandising trends in the entertainment industry that was gathering momentum in the 1920s with the ascension of mass circulation magazines and the radio. With movie companies and film producers devoting increasing attention to the new and mass market "talking" motion pictures, the Movement attempted to reach an audience open to the experimental, the eclectic, and the unusual. It hoped to appeal to devotees of silent films, foreign films and films based on the classics.
