Scopitones

Color-Sonics

The Color-Sonics film jukebox debuted in mid-1966, with films made by Official Films at Paramount Studios in Hollywood.

The Color-Sonics film jukebox used 8mm magnetic-sound film cartridges. Color-Sonics also made 16mm prints of at least some of its films so that they could be shown on a Scopitone jukebox. The 16mm prints have often faded miserably over the years.

This list, as far as I know, is a list of the Color-Sonics films that were issued in 16mm for use on the Scopitone (the CS- catalog number is a Scopitone designation). There may be many more of them, as by August of 1966, Color-Sonics was said to have a 200-title film library.

Color-Sonics Cartridge

Color-Sonics Cartridge

The following list contains some of the 8mm film cartridges made for the Color-Sonics film jukebox. Thanks to Dennis Dodel for providing some of the information for this list. I don't know how many of these films were also printed in 16mm, but note that some of these titles also exist as 16mm optical-sound prints made for the Cinebox/Colorama film jukebox. The three-digit number before the artist's name is the Color-Sonics catalog number.
