This article questions the usual claim that the first screening of Lumière films in China was at Xu Garden, Shanghai, in August 1896. It discovers two events that have eluded Chinese and global film history. Maurice Charvet screened Lumière films in the French Consulate in Hankou on the French National Day in 1897. Lumière projectionist Gabriel Veyre showed Lumière films in the French Concession in Shanghai in April 1999.
