Lonely Planet review
Cinema's glorious beginnings are showcased at the art nouveau home of Antoine Lumière, who moved to Lyon with sons Auguste and Louis in 1870. The brothers shot the first reels of the world's first motion picture, La Sortie des Usines Lumières (Exit of the Lumières Factories) here in one of their father's photographic factories in the grounds on 19 March 1895. The former factory is the Hangar du Premier Film cinema today.
