Datebook: October 19 - Auguste Lumiere Turns 150

Oct 19, 2012

Happy birthday to one half of the Lumiere brothers, the earliest filmmakers in history. Auguste and Louis patented the process of moving film through a camera and projector, showing their first film in 1895, of workers leaving their factory. Unfortunately, Louis felt "the cinema is an invention without any future."
