World's Oldest Public Cinema Reopens After Restoration
The Eden Theatre in the French seaside town of La Ciotat, near Marseilles, was where the Lumière brothers showed their moving picture - shot locally - of an oncoming train that had viewers leaping from their seats in fear. Now the 1889 house "as undergone a €6.5m ... refurbishment that has more than restored its former glory."
