Summary/Abstract: Films were shown as far back as 1896 in Budapest at the millennial celebrations of the Conquest of Hungary. The Lumière brothers filmed those celebrations and showed them in the special hotel auditorium to an audience that had been recruited for the occasion. The first Hungarian film, A tánc [The Dance], was made in 1901 and consisted of 27 very short episodes. Th e dances were shot with a rudimentary motionless camera, and featured some of the most popular actors of the day.
