The press release that accompanied the opening of the nightclub reads:
Cabaret Voltaire. Under this name a group of young artists and writers has been formed whose aim is to create a centre for artistic entertainment. The idea of the cabaret will be that guest artists will come and give musical performances and readings at the daily meetings. The young artists of Zurich, whatever their orientation, are invited to come along with suggestions and contributions of all kinds. -Zurich, February 2, 1916.

This is a clip from a movie about dada that I digitised from videotape.
I think that the original documentary film, from which this is an excerpt, is called 'Dada', directed by Greta Deses and originally produced in 1969. The link below should enable you to access a copy of the film from a source near you. I am fairly sure this is the film that I used.

In response to queries about the video. Since first posting the video I spent a considerable amount of time researching dada for a novel and am convinced that the video is, as always suspected, an excellent reconstruction. Ball's 'Flight out of time' makes no mention of any filming.
