This week in Placer County history

The interior of the Auburn Opera House circa 1900

On Nov. 23, 1901, patrons of the Auburn Opera House were treated to two hours of moving pictures. 

Reels of President William McKinley’s funeral processions in Washington; Buffalo, New York; and Canton, Ohio, were shown as well as reels of the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo (which McKinley was attending when assassinated) and the battlefields at San Juan Hill of the Spanish American War. Seats for the show were sold at the door and at Steven’s Drugstore for 10, 15 and 25 cents.

On Sept. 6, 1901, President McKinley was shot twice in the abdomen by anarchist Leon Czolgosz while he was shaking hands with the public at the exposition. He died of gangrene Sept. 14, 1901. 

Thomas Edison produced the moving pictures of McKinley’s funeral processions and distributed them to opera houses and theaters around the country. 

A unifying, somber presentation like the funeral of a slain president made the popularity of moving pictures soar. Click here if you would like to experience a little bit of what Auburn Opera House patrons did that day in 1901.
