Today marks the 118th anniversary of the screening of the first motion picture by the LumiÃ¨re brothers, Auguste and Louis. Although some historians place the date in December 1885, today's Guardian newspaper observes that the LumiÃ¨re's cinÃ©matographe, a combination camera and projector, was first demonstrated to a group of scientists on July 11, 1885. The film shown to them was titled La Sortie des Usines LumiÃ¨re, which merely showed workers at the LumiÃ¨re's factory leaving for their lunch break. It and other first films by the pioneering brothers can be viewed on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=3Dplayer_detailpage&v=3D4nj0vEO4Q6s.
