Time Out says

Do you remember the images from the film '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' where you see a fight between a sea-monster and a pearl fisher? Those were the first underwater images to be included in a commercial film (which was released in 1916), and shot by John Ernest Williamson. The scene led the way for mainstream cinema, both documentary and fiction productions, to take its cameras off dry land. Now Girona's Cinema Museum is commemorating the iconic moment with this exhibition all about the shoot and underwater filming of the past 100 years. You'll see objects and equipment used for capturing images in water, such as a replica of the first waterproof case created by L. Boutan for a photographic camera (1893) from the collection of Andrés Clarós. You can also see original photos and film posters, among other items. Dive right in!
