In 1982, Emile Reynaud (1844-1918) launched a new type of show at the Musée Grévin, however it was no longer theatrical. Moving picture shows were the first to provide audiences with a projection of animated images constituting a real story. The technical and aesthetic properties of these strips, (the picture shows) are testament to the thorough research that enabled the invention of cinema and of cinematographic shows. Today, only two of these strips remain.
