Movie on the Lawn
An Evening with Edison: Short films from 1908-1913


Movie on the Lawn

Select short films from the Edison, The Invention of the Movies collection will be screened. Yes, Thomas Edison is credited with the invention of the first commercially practical light bulb, but he was also very
influential in the development of early cinema. His laboratory invented the Kinetoscope (an early motion picture viewing device) and produced many early films. Movies begin at dusk. Bring lawn chairs or a blanket for seating. Concessions will be available for purchase.
