Behind the Screen illuminates the many processes involved in producing, marketing, and exhibiting the moving image, with more than a thousand film and television artifacts, computer-based interactive experiences, commissioned installations, audio-visual materials, and demonstrations of professional equipment and techniques.

Fourteen classic video games in their original arcade versions, are now on display and playable in Behind the Screen, in the section "Interacting with the Screen." Four game tokens are available for a dollar. Also, there are daily talks by educators about early video game technology.
