This article reviews numerous studies on chemistry movies. Movies, or moving pictures, are important elements of multimedia and signify a privileged or motivating means of presenting knowledge. Studies on chemistry movies show that the first movie productions in this field were devoted to university lectures or documentaries. Shorter movies were limited to a single experiment, to be used in the classroom. Movies for preparing for laboratory work and examinations appeared later. The article offers useful information about the ways in which chemistry movies have been used in the last half-century and the benefits such movies provide students in the school environment. The article also offers recommendations on perspectives concerning the training of teachers who are involved in using chemistry movies as a method of instruction in their classes.
