One evening in December in 1895, a crowd of Parisians gathered to see the world change: It was the first public presentation of a device called the Cinematographe. Unimpressed, the audience watched as an image of a street was projected onto a screen. But when a horse suddenly came into view, pulling a cart, they were stunned. They knew they had seen the future. The motion picture had been born.
