WORLD'S FIRST MOVIE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first movie?
This one is a bit tough so we'll
present some examples.
In 1877 Charles Emile Reynaud invented the Praxinoscope, a mirrored drum that
gives the illusion of movement using strips of pictures.
In 1881 William Kennedy Laurie Dickson designed the
Kinetoscope, a kind of movie projector and ran a trial of a movie called
after Thomas Edison's invention of the Kinetoscope the Holland Brothers opened
the first Kinetoscope Parlor in New York. This was the first commercial
exhibition of movies.
1895 Louis and Auguste Lumiere patented Cinematographe, a device that could
project movies to several spectators at the same time. December 28 1895 they
presented the first commercial display of a movie to an audience, running 20
minutes, consisting of 10 short stories.
'The Great Train Robbery' (1903) is considered to be
the first real full length movie, the first narrative Western film with a
storyline, and the first real smash hit.
