Biographical / Historical
"Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon)," was a French black and white silent science fiction film, written, directed and produced by Georges Melies in 1902. A version of this production was shown via a mutoscope, an early motion picture device in which individual film frames were attached to a circular core. Mutoscopes were coin-operated and the patron viewed the cards through a single lens enclosed by a hood. Each machine held only a single reel and was dedicated to the presentation of a single short subject
