De Méliès à la 3D

"We're rolling…" This is lovely. The La Cinémathèque museum in Paris is opening a new exhibit this week called "De Méliès à la 3D, la machine cinéma" which roughly translates to "From Méliès to 3D, the machines of cinema". The exhibition features the various cameras used throughout film history, showing off equipment including projectors and "the first cameras [used by] Marey, Lumière and Méliès, the beautiful Technicolor Hollywood classics, cameras [used by] Jean-Luc Godard, the torpedo submarine of Oceans, machine Microcosmos, the luxurious and modern Panavision, and the latest digital devices." This vibrant trailer includes footage from films like Super 8, Ed Wood and Hugo. This definitely makes me want to visit.

Here's the official trailer for the De Méliès à la 3D, la machine cinéma exhibition, direct from Vimeo:

Official description from La Cinémathèque via Vimeo: Through its collections, among the richest in the world, the French Cinematheque presents a new exhibition on the history of the art and the successive metamorphoses of the moving image of the late nineteenth century to the digital age. Projectors, cameras, studio and laboratory equipment, archives, rare films… will be revealed in a course at once aesthetic, technological and historical punctuated with projections, sounds and machines in operation or simulation. The exhibition runs from October 5th, 2016 to January 29th, 2016 at the La Cinémathèque museum located in Paris, France. Thanks to Keyframe Daily for the tip on this.
