Film History: The Lumière Brothers - Auguste and Louis - Present the First Paid Screening of a Projected Motion Picture on December 28, 1895, 117 Years Ago Today
If you're interested in film history, here is a link where you can read about other key moments in the early history of filmmaking. In addition, here is a link where you can read about the Lumière Brothers (as well as Eadweard Muybridge and George-Jean Méliès) and here is another link where you can read about the similarities between the work of early cinema pioneers and today's YouTube filmmakers.
Thanks to Jon Bowen for reminding me that Dec. 28th is a special day in the history of the film business.
