Was the train really pulling into the station when this was shot?
22 February 2018 | by He_who_lurksSee all my reviews

I really am not sure. The train appears to still have a long ways to go by the time the short ends. It doesn't seem like it's slowing down or anything. I suppose maybe it was close enough to the station that the Lumiere Bros thought they could get away with it. In any case, this Lumiere feature is different. The camera is not stationary, it moves!!! Okay, big deal, because it was on a train (look at the title) and Alexandre Promio had already shot the world's first moving shot in Venice on a gondola, but it's still remarkable for 1896. It's mainly just about capturing the surrounding scenery as it was at the time, so historians will find it worthwhile for that alone. Seeing buildings as they were in 1896 is a privilege, so be entertained by these 40 seconds.
