Movies in ancient China

Maybe it can't be accounted as a film projector, but a slide projector. People just sit on the chair and look in to the hole as you can see in the picture. And the guy in the photo, he is the projectionist as well as the narrator. I think it's a good idea to watch a "movie" like this, if you are sick of sitting in a cenema and staring at the big screem.

What sort of tales do they tell? Traditional? Modern? Romance? All of the above?
