Cinema is a application with a long history and has had several different incarnations. This is a page about the version that I wrote. Cinema itself is now available here. This version of Cinema is now largely obsolete. The version that obsoleted it is part of the Utopia toolkit. For replacements to the libraries that we developed, the BioJava project is excellent.
At the current time Cinema is only available as a single "source and binary" download. In time I shall package it as a binary only distribution which should reduce the size considerably.
