Description

Shot in December 1902, this film shows a variety of Dublin residents in their Sunday best and was intended to attract people from the crowd to the cinematograph show to see themselves on screen. In the background, a poster advertises a sermon by the Very Rev. J. Conmee. The same John Conmee was rector at the Jesuit boarding school attended by the young James Joyce, and features in Joyce's Ulysses.

A crowd of people

This is another one of Mitchell & Kenyon crowd shots in order to attract the people to the movies in order to see themselves. It is pretty close up, but because you can make up the text in the back in the beginning in order to pinpoint it to history it's better than simply faces. Still, these shots are not the pinnacle of early cinema.
