How It Works

Watch the world’s oldest film

Information: The Roundhay Garden Scene was shot by French inventor Louis Le Prince in 1888. The film was shot at 12 frames per second and ran for just 2.11 seconds. It was filmed at Oakwood Grange, Leeds, England and features four characters walking around the house’s exterior. The film is the oldest film in existence, as recognised by the Guinness Book of Records.
