France the birth place of cinema fun fact

Where did cinema all begin?

Did you ever wonder how film and movies all began? Who came up with the crazy idea to project moving images on to the wall? Well, wonder no more. In 1895, the Lumiere brothers first projected a flickering image onto a wall of the Grand Cafe in Paris, and this was the first commercial public-screening of film. This made France the birthplace of cinema, and that's why we include the cinema card in our Explore France flashcard pack. Can anybody guess what very popular French film character appears on our cinema flashcard? If you guessed Amelie the iconic French film you're definitely correct!
