Background: Not to be confused with Dimension Films. Dimension Pictures was a film studio that existed in the 1970s and primarily worked in the exploitation field. Dimension was founded in 1970 by Lawrence Woolner, an exhibitor who had made a number of films, including several with Roger Corman. He hired the husband-and-wife team of Stephanie Rothman and Charles S. Swartz to run the filmmaking division. Rothman and Swartz left in 1975 but the company continued until about 1980.

Nickname: "DPI"

Logo: On a black or blue (depending on film quality) background, we see the letters "
DPi" (rather plopped on each other horizontally, in the same font used in the logo for Orbit Gum) zoom out to the center. The text:


fades in underneath.

FX/SFX: The logo zooming-out.

Music/Sounds: Either silent or the opening soundtrack of the film. In some instances, a whimsical flute tune would be heard.

Availability: Rare. Can be seen on some of their films like Kingdom of the Spiders and Screams of a Winter Night. This logo surprisingly made an appearance on the 2007 film Death Proof, released by the other Dimension Films company.

Editor's Note: None.
