        Can anybody confirm the story of the 28 December 1895
screenings, when viewers ran out of the auditorium upon seeing *The
Arrival of the Train at the Station* because they couldn't
distinguish between reality and representation?  I am asking because
when MoMa recreated that evening 100 years later, with the same exact
screening schedule, *The Arrival* wasn't among the films shown.
        Thank you,

        Gloria Monti
