First Film Projection

The brothers Louis and Auguste Lumière were two of the earliest players in the development of motion pictures. Their cinématographe device, patented in 1895, was a combined cine-camera and projector, using an intermittent claw derived from the mechanism used in sewing machines. It was used to show the first projected cinema film to a paying audience, in the basement of the Grand Café, Paris, on 28 December 1895. This example is the earliest surviving from the subsequent production run.
