Movie Info

Another of the Lumiere Brothers' one-shot films, this time showing a steam train arriving at a station and moving towards the camera It has passed into film folklore for the incident that occurred at its world premiere, when the audience, unfamiliar with the cinema thought the train was really coming right at them, and panicked!

Audience Reviews for L'Arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat (The Arrival of the Mail Train)

One of cinema's most important landmarks features what people from 1900 would call a top- notch thriller. Not much to the whole thing, but because this is a monument in history, it goes down as great in my book.

Well, it's hard to say it's revolutionary. I guess it was worth the 50 seconds I put into it, though. Anyone who enjoys the study of film history should watch this off of YouTube.

The first movie shown by the Lumiere brothers or by anyone to an audience of people. Every movie buff needs to see it.
