Salon Indien du Grand Café

Le Salon Indien du Grand Café was a room in the basement of the Grand Café, near the Place de l'Opéra in the center of Paris. It is notable for being the place that hosted the very first public moviescreening, on December 28, 1895. Among the ten short clips presented by the Lumière brothers were La Sortie des usines Lumière and l'Arroseur Arrosé.

Currently, the building standing at No. 14 Boulevard des Capucines is the Hotel Scribe, which opened a restaurant called 'Café Lumière', in memory of its history.
