The Lumiere Brothers: #OnThisDay

On 22nd of March 1895, the Lumière brothers, Auguste and Louis, put on show their first film at the  Société d’Encouragement à l’Industrie Nationale.

Several different inventors were experimenting with moving pictures but the Lumière brothers used the Cinématographe to film. It could be taken anywhere and used to film and as a projector. Working with  Jules Carpentier, an engineer, they refined the machine and its production.
