Since then, cinema has blossomed into a multibillion-dollar industry that doubles as an indelible part of American culture. To celebrate, TIME compiled a five-minute video that chronicles 10 decades' worth of increasing film grosses. The clip traces each year's biggest blockbuster, from 1914 to 2013. Along the way, we encounter "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "West Side Story," "Back to the Future" and other film classics that remain an essential part of Hollywood's history.
