 City of Cinema details the emergence of film in 19th-century Paris, with works by the Lumiere brothers, Mélies, Chéret, and more. It explains the transformation of this entertainment into the most influential art form of the 20th century, putting cinema within the context of the Parisian visual culture and exploring how it aligned with French cultural and political authority. Images from the works of Jean Béraud, Charles Marville, Jules Chéret, Auguste and Louis Lumière, Loïe Fuller, Émile Reynaud, Georges Méliès, Camille Pissarro, and Jean-Leon Gerome demonstrate cinema's relationship with technology and the fine arts and highlight the places of production.

This book examines how cinema enabled people to experience and interpret the world in a new way.
