    It has been 112 years since Louis Lumiere's invention of the modern motion picture projector, and 140 since William Lincoln patented the zoopraxiscope, which displayed animated film to one viewer at a time. In 1891 (116 years ago) Thomas Edison demonstrated the kinetoscope, which showed film to one viewer at a time, and in 1896 the vitascope, the first commercially successful projector in the United States.Perhaps we could say that the Lumiere brothers introduced the first commercial movie theaters 112 years ago.

    It was in 1895, that the first movie screening took place. So thats 112 years ago!And don't forget that also on the 28th the first public street cars were used in SanFran and thanks to that day Seattle-lites can now ride the S.L.U.T.

      In fact, when the San Francisco cable cars debuted in 1873, New York had had horse-drawn street cars since 1832, and New Orleans since 1835.The first electric street Railway opened in 1888, in Richmond.
