Answers to Questions Kids Ask! - Where "Why?" Turns to "Wow!"
The world’s very first moving picture was filmed in 1888. A Frenchman named Louis-Augustin Le Prince, who lived in England, created a movie camera and made a three-second film of the horse-and-buggy traffic on a busy road. He had a patent for his machine, but he only showed the film to a few people, so the public didn’t know about it for years. In 1894, Thomas Edison invented the Kinetoscope, which showed motion pictures inside a peep-show type of cabinet. A Kinetoscope parlor opened in New York that year and showed movies of stage and circus acts.
