What were the names of the Lumiere brothers and what did they do for film?

Louis (1864-1948) and Auguste (1862-1954) Lumiere developed the first motion picture projector (which also served as a camera), the Cinematographe, patented February 13, 1895.

December 28, 1895, is widely considered the birthday of cinema. This was the first time the Lumiere brothers showed their films to paying customers at the Grand Café in Paris.

The program of short subjects included the arrival of a train, workers leaving their factory, and L’Arroseur Arrose, a brief farce that was the world’s first fiction film.
