• The world's first Silver Screen was in Akron, Ohio at the Majestic Theatre on South Main Street. In 1924, projectionist Harry C. Williams coated the white cloth screen with silver paint to better reflect the light of the movies. He also painted the screen of the Norka Theater on East Market Street. From that, came the phrase "silver screen" to symbolize Hollywood movies.
