The Lumiere Kinora

A very important item

This is the Lumiere Kinora, a clockwork flick viewer patented by the Lumiere brothers in 1896. The Lumiere brothers gave the first successful commercial screening of a movie and this item is an important link between all the optical toys exhibited in the museum and the Movies.
