Default August and Louis Lumière

“On this day in 1895 that Auguste and Louis Lumière opened the first movie theater at the Grand Café in Paris. Other inventors, including Thomas Edison, were working on various moving picture devices at the time. But most of those other devices could only be viewed by one person at a time. The Lumières were the first to project moving pictures on a screen so that they could be viewed by a large audience.”

from The Writer’s Almanac for Saturday, December 28.
