VIDEO: Auguste Lumiere, father of cinema

by Peter D. Marshall

from CBS News.


And now a page from our “Sunday Morning” Almanac: October 19, 1862, 152 years ago today . . . the debut of a future film-making pioneer.

For that was the day Auguste Lumiere was born in a small town in France.

Together with his younger brother, Louis, Auguste Lumiere improved on Thomas Edison’s early projector, making it possible for more than one person at a time to watch a movie.

Their first exhibition in late December 1895 featured 10 short films, beginning with a shot of workers leaving the Lumiere factory . . . cutting-edge cinema for its time, believe it or not.

Watch these videos from CBS News.
