120 Years of Cinema in 120 Seconds

On December 28, 1895, exactly 126 years ago, the first professional cinema show was presented to the public. Auguste and Louis Lumière showed ten of their short films at Paris’s Grand Café. Moon Film made a compilation of the history of cinema in a a very short form. This two-minute video begins with a still picture, the very first photograph, taken in 1826. It quickly moves to early movies, and then gives us a glimpse of 75 films you already know that chronicle the history of filmmaking.

We've certainly come a long way in the art of making movies. You can almost see the innovations being made in the leap from one movie to the next. It makes you wonder what the next 100 years will bring.n -via Mental Floss
