    Bingo! Thus the name, which lingers on long after its origins have vanished, like dialing a phone or taping a TV show.

    They probably did, but after the movie is over, everyone leaves…So they want to catch them before, in hopes they like the coming attractions and will want to come back next week…I’m guessing…

    When people stop using film, who will remember why we call it “footage?”

    A “Trailer” is always after the vehicle ….not before.

    What would you measure with “inchage”? And keep your answer clean.

    Used to be two movies with cartoons, between the first and second feature.

    Don’t worry, pal. You’ve got lots of company.

    We always called them “previews.” I never noticed when the common term changed to “trailer.” Of course the green label on the screen before the trailer calls it a preview. Now I’m doubly confused.

    Movies used to run continuously. And there was more than just the feature, usually cartoons, news reels, short subjects and the feature the trailers. You went to the movie anytime and watched until it started to repeat. That is where the phrase “This is where we came in.” meaning time to leave came from.
