* First used in a Hollywood score in Hitchcock's ''Film/{{Spellbound}}''.

* First Music/MiklosRozsa was the first composer to incorporate the theremin in film scores:
** He first
used in a Hollywood score in it on the soundtrack of ''Film/TheLostWeekend'' (1945), for the nightmare sequences.
** He also utilized the unusual instrument for
Hitchcock's ''Film/{{Spellbound}}''.
* ''Film/TheLostWeekend'', about a alcoholic's weekend-long binge.
''Film/{{Spellbound}}'' (1945). That score was supposed to be the first one with the theremin, which producer David O. Selznick was really excited about. When he found out that Rózsa was also using the instrument in his score for ''The Lost Weekend'', Selznick was furious. He knew that ''The Lost Weekend'' would be released before ''Spellbound'' (Weekend was released in November, Spellbound in December), thus spoiling Selznick's "first-score-with-theremin" thunder.

** He has played the Theremin at every one of his concerts since 1997 along with various pieces of music, starting with "Oxygène 10" (which doesn't really have any Theremin parts in its studio version), later with older material such as "Magnetic Fields 1". During his 1997 tour, he even explained the Theremin to his audience and briefly told them its history.

* By the way, the Theremin might not be as popular as it is today, weren't it for Dr. Robert A. Moog himself, later founder of Moog Music, who has been making the Etherwave Theremin from 1954 on, for a while under the brand name Big Briar. Moog Music still makes the Etherwave and has recently given it a younger brother named Theremini, the first virtual-analog Theremin.
