    Original Title: L'Arrivée d'un Train à la Ciotat
    Directors: Auguste and Louis Lumière
    Year: 1895

    The first public exhibition of motion pictures occurred on 28th December 1895 when August Lumière and Louis Lumière (the Lumière Brothers) exhibited a selection of ten of their single-reel films to a paying audience at a Parisian cafe. 'Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat' is considered to be the first motion picture in modern history (altough more an experiment from the Lumière-brothers to use their 'invention' of film, it shows a train arriving at a passenger station). Popular legend has it that, when this film was shown, the first-night audience fled the cafe in terror, fearing being run over by the "approaching" train.

    I've never bought that story about terrified people running from the theater. Photography had been around for fifty years, hard for me to believe that moving pictures could create mass panic.

    I thought the pacing was slow. Character development was non-existent.

    This is about the earliest thing on record from the US. Three guys from Jersey beat the shit out of something and then have a beer.
