- Kalem Studios was begun in New York City in 1907. It opened a permanent studio in Jacksonville in 1908-the first film studio to do so. And by doing, became the first studio to film year-round. The studio had made the first Ben-Hur and the first adaptation of Dr Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. In 1917, the company was bought out by Vitagragh Studios.
