Not the first movie ever, but considered the very first movie ever being shown to the public, by the Lumière brothers who were the pioneers in "making" movies. Their first movie is usually entitled "Workers Leaving the Factory" (filmed at the entrance of the brothers' factory itself).

A confusing cross between interesting and dull

Although the only thing that happens is a train comes into a station, it is only 50 seconds, although it is dull, it is also interesting as it is one of the first movies ever and is worth a look especially if you're interested in the first movies ever

A group of people are standing in a straight line along the platform of a railway station, waiting for a train, which is seen coming at some distance. When the train stops at the platform, the line dissolves. The doors of the railway-cars open, and people on the platform help passengers to get off.
