A Trip to the Moon, a 1902 short film, is largely responsible for getting the world excited about seeing movies. Directed by French director Georges Méliès, this film came at a time when film was a minor novelty. Méliès tried to sell copies of the film to fairground exhibitors and was met with universal rejection because they couldn’t believe the high price and length (13 minutes) of the film. He eventually gave a copy for free for a single screening and the audience loved it, staying in the theater watching it until midnight. Is it still good today? Well, objectively, not really. But it’s fun and entertaining, and it’s only 13 minutes long. It’s also a fun little piece of cinematic history that’s neat to experience 115 years after it was released.
