The Lumiere Brothers

by

On this day in 1895 two brothers, Auguste and Louis Lumiere held a screening of their first motion picture, La Sortie de l’Usine Lumiere a Lyon (The Exit from the Lumiere Factory in Lyon). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnVwgLORy2Y

These pioneers of early cinema went on to make several other short films including this well-known one that, by popular legend, caused much fear and panic in the auditorium: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlb3XKjnZkE
