Lumière! The invention of cinema

The Cineteca di Bologna brings an exhibition devoted to the fathers of modern cinema in partnership with the Institut Lumière of Lyon.

The exhibition crossed the French border to invade the Cineteca di Bologna, a venue highly praised by film lovers in Emilia-Romagna and beyond, to tell the life of the Lumière family. The father first, who was a photographer, and of course the two brothers who invented the cinematograph. The first public screening took place on December 28th, 1895, soon after the creation of the first movie camera, which allowed shooting and projecting film in 35mm format.

During the exhibition, their films will be screened of course, but other inventions by Louis and Auguste Lumière are also on display, like the first camera to ever allow the general public to shoot in colour. It also sheds a light on their heritage, with screenings of movies by major filmmakers.
