Background: Cinema Center Films was the first film production arm of the CBS Television Network, active from 1967 to 1972. The studio's films were distributed by National General Corporation. Currently, CBS Television Distribution owns the television distribution rights to the library, while Paramount Pictures owns theatrical rights (Paramount Home Media Distribution owns home media rights via their distribution agreement with CBS Home Entertainment).

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. Me Natalie used the end logo to National General's 3rd logo.

FX/SFX: "CCF" drawing, the pink dots appearing and the line drawing.

Cheesy Factor: The animation is basic.

  • Usually silent, but sometimes has the beginning of the film's opening theme.
  • On Me Natalie, it used a piano orchestration theme.
  • On A Boy Named Charlie Brown, it used an instrumental jazzy arrangement of the "Champion Charlie Brown" theme from the film.

Availability: Rare. Usually saved on the films that used this logo, including Scrooge, Little Big Man, Blue Water, White Death and the first two theatrical Peanuts films A Boy Named Charlie Brown and Snoopy Come Home, the last film to use this logo. All home media releases of the studio's output preserve the logo.

Scare Factor: Low. It mainly depends on the music.
