1897: Cinema comes to Morocco

Movies reached Morocco in 1897 but details are sketchy.   The first projection of movies is believed to have taken place at the Palais Royal de Fes.   It is also recorded that an unnamed Lumiere concessionaire made a film entitled Le Chevalier Marocain (The Moroccan Knight) in Morocco in 1897.   Prince Albert I of Monaco is known to have made five films in Morocco in the summer of 1897 with a Gaumont camera.
