Recently, an increasing number of researchers have tried to reveal the mode of exhibition during early cinema period, and shown that film exhibition was originally influenced from the prior theater practices and audiences experienced something beyond the screen. This kind of research is significant in the point that they demonstrate how film experiences are shaped by the environment of showing. However, they usually assume that there was a clear distinction between early cinema period and classical Hollywood cinema period, and based on this binary opposition of attractions versus narrative, they allot a diversity to the former and uniformity to the latter. Therefore, these researches tend to abstract various exhibition practices during classical Hollywood cinema period. In contrast to this current, this paper focuses on the mode of exhibition during the 1920’s in Japan and examines how the various experience was mediated through that mode.
