The International Day is celebrated movie. 110 years ago in the Big Cafe on the Boulevard des Capucines in Paris held its first public demonstration of "moving" pictures with film, invented by the Lumiere brothers.

Frenchmen, Louis and Auguste Lumiere, in 1895 received a patent for their apparatus "motion picture" and that same year in Paris staged the first ever film session. In the same year, only for friends, they staged a display of his short film "Out of working with the Lumiere Factory."
