We watch movies (or films) on our televisions or in the cinema. Movies are visual sequences that tell a story. The first motion picture film was made in 1888, over one hundred years ago. Since then, millions of films have been made around the world and it has become a primary source of entertainment and a billion dollar industry. Hollywood is an area of Los Angeles where the US film industry is based, and is now the most famous film industry in the world. Most people enjoy watching movies, even though some can be very bad.
