Lifecruisers kinematograf
The text says: Lumières kinematograf in the old Stockholm, proof at one of the 900 photographs that together make a kinematografic picture. (I took the photo at the Technical Museum in Stockholm).

This is not so Wordless Wednesday, butt I can’t keep quiet about this!!!

28 december 1895 projected film was shown for the first time for a paying audience. This was with help of the brothers Auguste & Louis Lumières combinated film camera and projector le Cinématographe.

The show room was an oriental decorated billiard salon in the basement of Grand Café at Boulevard des Capucines number 14, in Paris. The cinema were presented as Cinématographe Lumière at the posters and was the first cinema in the world.

The fee at the premier night was 1 franc. The film name was L’Arrivée d’un train en gare de la Ciotat – The train arrives at Ciotats station. (Source: Wikipedia)

Already in 1896 was the first public cinema opened in Sweden and since then it has just went on….

    That reminds me of what my son had to study for his exam as a photographer and I had to listen to all this, yes the old frères Lumières ! Wikipedia is the best, honestly, you really find everything in there. One of the COT members has a cat called Wikipedia (short Wiki) because she is so intelligent ! Geez I had to laugh ! to find such a name for a cat, lol ! I am waiting for Claudie’s reportage ! So far I watch everything in belgian TV each day !! But my good old George is not there (not Bush but Clooney) !

    Another history lesson. I just love this. Excellent post. Who cares if you used words? I didn’t! Happy WW. :)

    Oh, my, how on earth do you think this hungry monster will be able to actually choose dining places just like that???? Hrmppfffff!

    Though I must admit: this is probably the best meme in a long time, because at least it has some more usable facts…

    WHEN, that’s another question…!!!

    Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    Thanks for that :-)

    Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    Yes, I was quite surprised that there wasn’t any translation from the Swedish Wiki to english. Strange.

    Oh, please do and report to us!

    Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    Yes, of course, that pretty lady has to have a name! Right over to you with my suggestion!

    Lifecruiser SWEDEN said:

    Yes, it’s the old movie they showed there, like being thrown back in time!

    TorAa NORWAY said:

    Captain of the movies as well, you are. Great. Besides, I’m very anxious to see your restaurant recommodations;))

    Gattina BELGIUM said:

    To call little kitten Vivien to fit with King Arthur is a great idea ! the only hic is that my neighbor’s name is Vivienne (french for Vivien) so can you imagine that we shout “Vivienne, get home” or “Vivenne don’t scratch the carpet” or “Vivienne your litter box is here and not in the plants” and my neighbor will follow ?
    We both had to laugh with this idea (Vivienne included, lol)

    Gina SWEDEN said:

    That was a fantastic Red Carpet experience!
    The Hubbs could use those dress shoes! Can the text be altered for every blog, lol!?
