The Birthplace of Cinema: Edison's Black Maria Studio.

On February 1, 1893, Thomas A. Edison achieved a significant milestone in entertainment history with the completion of the first motion picture studio, the Black Maria, in West Orange, New Jersey. This pioneering studio, with its unique tar-papered, rotating structure, was designed to capture natural daylight, facilitating the filming of Edison's early motion pictures. The Black Maria marked the beginning of the film industry, serving as the production site for numerous early cinematic works and laying the foundation for the future of film production and motion picture design.
