    credits began to roll

    "Credits" means "people who participated in the film making" and did it happen on the screen or in another way in the sentence? What does "roll" here mean? the screen going up as we can see after a movie ends?

    ex)As the film eneded and the credits began to roll, I noticed that no one in the theater got up to leave.
