The entry of the first cinematographic device to Iran in 1900 by Mozafar al-Din Shah is considered to be the beginning of Iran's cinema. The first Iranian cinema hall was launched in the same year (5 years after its worldwide invention by the Lumiere brothers), called "Cinema Sulli", founded by Catholics in Tabriz, but due to the lack of access to new films, it was closed in 1916. The first public cinema in Iran was opened by Mirza Ibrahim Khan Shahabashi in 1904. But the first official hall of Iranian cinema (Grand Cinema) was created in 1926 in Tehran. By the year 1930, no Iranian films were made, and a few cinemas were established to show Western films that sometimes had Persian subtitles.
