Columbia was founded on January 10, 1924 by Jack Cohn, Harry Cohn, and Joe Brandt as a successor to Cohn-Brandt-Cohn (CBC) Film Sales Corporation, which was established on June 19, 1918. and took its current name in 1968. It released its first feature film on January 15, 1924 with "Discontented Husbands".

Disney-related events[]

Columbia served as the distributor for Walt Disney Productions' Mickey Mouse and Silly Symphonies short subjects released from 1929 to 1932.

Post-Disney events[]

Columbia acquired Winkler Pictures during production of their Krazy Kat cartoons.

Columbia Pictures Corporation was renamed to Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc. in 1966.

Columbia was sold to Sony on September 28, 1989 for $3.4 billion.[3] It optioned script versions of a Spider-Man film from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in April 1999.[4]
