Background: Cinema Center Films was the first movie production arm of the CBS Television Network active from 1967 to 1972.
(August 7, 1968-August 16 1981)
Nicknames: "CCF", "The Movie Projector"
Logo: On a blue background, we see "CCF" being drawn in big black letters designed to represent an abstract movie projector. Then pink dots appear with a line drawing around them, to look like the film running through the projector. A white line wiping and coming out of the "F" (the "projector lens") reveals the text "CINEMA CENTER FILMS", which then fades into "PRESENTS". The logo only appears once at the start of the film.
Closing Title: At the end of the film, the words "A CINEMA CENTER FILMS PRESENTATION" appear, with the words "A NATIONAL GENERAL RELEASE" below it.
FX/SFX: "CCF" drawing, the pink dots appearing, the line drawing.
- Usually silent, but sometimes has the beginning of the movie's theme.
- On Me Natalie, it used a piano/orchestration theme.
- On A Boy Named Charlie Brown, it used a a jazzy theme.
Availability: Rare. Usually saved on the films that used this logo, including Scrooge, Little Big Man, Blue Water, White Death, and for example, the first two theatrical Peanuts features A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Snoopy Come Home, which the latter film title was the last film to use this logo. The DVDs of all Cinema Center Films releases preserve the logo, however.
Scare Factor: Low. It mainly depends on the music.
