The concept of movies first came about during the 1800s. Toward the last decade of the century, movies would grow from one scene that lasted seconds to multiple scenes that went on for minutes.

While earlier decades would feature black and white films, this would soon change to today's colorful movie world that is often enhanced through special effects.

Although the film industry has significantly changed, that hasn't affected the impact of the films through time. Old classics like Gone with the Wind and The Sound of Music are still among some of the most celebrated films of all time. Action lovers flock to theaters for Marvel's superhero films. Romance lovers will still head to the movies for a brand new rom-com. With the thousands of films released within their different genres, have you kept track of them?
