The Cinematographe, invented by Auguste (1862-1954) and Louis (1864-1948) Lumiere, was a combined camera projector and printer. This Cinematographe was made by the instrument maker Jules Carpentier. It is the eighth of an initial production run of 200 Cinematographes made by Carpentier for the Lumieres. This followed their succesful first cinema show to a paying audience, which was held at the Grand Cafe on the Boulevard des Capucines in Paris, France, on 28 December 1895.
