One of the series of signs describing historical places in Paris. The signs were placed starting in 1992 and are also called sucettes Starck (Starck’s Lollipops) after Philippe Starck who designed them.

The sign describes the place where the Lumière brothers’ documentary film "The Workers’ Exit from the Lumiere Factory in Lyon" was shown, a film made in 1895, which is considered the first film ever filmed. In addition, Wilhelm Roentgen presented his experiments in the use of X-rays there

History of Paris

Hôtel Scribe
Included in 1861 in the vast urban planning operation of the new Opera district, the Scribe hotel (1, rue Scribe) was from 1863 the headquarters of the "Jockay-Club", (Society for the encouragement of the improvement of the races of horses in France) founded 30 years earlier at 2, rue du Helder. He occupied the luxurious lounges on the first floor for 50 years. The ground floor was reserved for the "Grand Café": gold paneling, red benches, no less than twelve billiards tables and private rooms welcomed a worldly clientele. The basement was converted into an "Indian living room": on December 28, 1895, the Lumiere brothers presented their cinema there with "The release of the Lumière factories in Lyon", and 9 other films. "When these cameras are delivered to the public, when everyone will be able to photograph the beings dear to them no longer in their immobile form, but in their movement, in their action, in their familiar gestures, with words on their lips, death will cease to be absolute". On January 13, 1896, Dr. Röntgen’s X-ray experiment was also presented there.
