“In 1894, Thomas Edison unveiled the kinetoscope, a “peephole device” that displayed moving pictures. In France the next year, the Lumiere Brothers went a step further by projecting moving images on a screen, which would later transform the act of viewing films from an individual to a shared social experience” (http://www.nwhm.org/online-exhibits/film/1.html)
