ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on U.S. film exhibitors' efforts to slow the growth of cable television through lobbying and research. Particular focus is given to the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) and its communications to federal agencies such as the U.S. Congress and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). According to the author, these efforts introduced NATO representatives to changes in industrial and political realities and forced them to accommodate the new medium.
