Microsoft Cinemania is an electronic movie encyclopedia filled with film reviews, biographies, photos, and sound and video clips. Included are reviews from Roger Ebert, Leonard Maltin and Pauline Kael, and articles from Baseline's Encyclopedia of Film. Over 19,000 entries from Maltin's Movie and Video Guide make up the bulk of the reviews, with Kael contributing more than 2,500, and Ebert over 1,300. The various elements of the program are tied together with a graphical interface that allows for both casual browsing and targeted searching.
Four editions of the series were released, beginning with Microsoft Cinemania '94 and ending with Microsoft Cinemania 97. Each edition included additional content for that year, as well as further multimedia enhancements. Starting with the 96 edition, Microsoft offered limited-time updates to the software through the Internet.
Microsoft Cinemania. Interactive Movie Guide was a reference and educational Multimedia application CD-ROM produced by Microsoft and published annually beginning in 1992. The software was mainly a database of films, in a similar fashion to the Internet Movie Database, and gave descriptions of the films and who starred in them. Most of this information was not readily accessible before broadband internet.
