Lumiere Exhibition

Time to head to Paris; from the New York Times:

"Timed to the 120th anniversary of the first film screening shown to a paying audience, a new exhibition at the Grand Palais here celebrates the aptly named Lumière brothers, Louis and Auguste, whose last name means light and who helped invent cinema as we know it — as well as color photography and 3-D technology.

"On view through June 14, the exhibition “Lumière! Inventing Cinema” showcases early films by the brothers, restored by the Institut Lumière in Lyon, a film history and restoration center; along with examples of early cinema technology — kinetoscopes, zoetropes — and documentation about the rapid spread of the medium at the turn of the 20th century."
