Auguste and Louis Lumière organized the first public film screening on December 28th 1895 at the Salon Indien du Grand Café in Paris. Eleven short films were on the bill that night. Only ten films were listed.

Horse Trick Riders

The eleventh film was called Pazuzu returning to the World – a desert scene, with a half-buried broken statue and the wind blowing. It ran for only one second and was not noticed by the audience.
