T: In the 2nd century BC (before Christ) a lift was made of the most impressive and beautiful man – made objects in the world. These were called The Seven Wonders of the world.
The Pharos, lighthouse of Alexandria
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
The Statue of Zeuz at Olimpia

T: I don’t believe that today’s wonders are similar in kind to the wonders of the Ancient World. They were all buildings and statues. In the last two centures we have seen inprecedented technical and scientific achievements. These are surely our modern wonders. One of them is cinema.
T: Today we are going to speak about this event and its history. By the way, do you know who made the first film? What was it about? Listen to the text and answer these question.
Although the greatest cinema empire is Hollywood, the inventors of the cinema were the French, not Americans. The Lumiere brothers invented the first film projector and motion – picture camera in 1895. That year on the 28th of December they demonstrated the first three – minutes film “arrival of the train”. In that film, a train came towards the camera. People ran out of the cinema, thinking it was a real train.
T: Hollywood is called the capital of filmed entertainment. Here is a story of it. I’d like you to read the text and fill in the table with the new information.

T: All kinds of art are connected with each other: literature, poetry, music, etc.
So, many famous composers and poets write theirs songs for films. And sometimes the poems of great poets of the past are used in the film. I suggest that you should listen to a famous sonnet by Shakespeare. All of you remember Pugacheva’s song from the film “The woman, who sing”.
Then hate me when thou wilt; if ever, now;
Now, while the world is bent my deeds to cross,
Join with the spite of fortune, make me bow,
And do not drop in for an after-loss:
Ah, do not, when my heart hath 'scoped this sorrow,
Come in the rearward of a conquer'd woe;
Give not a windy night a rainy morrow,
To linger out a purposed overthrow.
If thou wilt leave me, do not leave me last,
When other petty griefs have done their spite
But in the onset come; so shall I taste
At first the very worst of fortune's might,
And other strains of woe, which now seem woe,
Compared with loss of thee will not seem so.
Уж если ты разлюбишь, — так теперь,
Теперь, когда весь мир со мной в раздоре.
Будь самой горькой из моих потерь,
Но только не последней каплей горя!
И если скорбь дано мне превозмочь,
Не наноси удара из засады.
Пусть бурная не разрешится ночь
Дождливым утром — утром без отрады.
Оставь меня, но не в последний миг,
Когда от мелких бед я ослабею.
Оставь сейчас, чтоб сразу я постиг,
Что это горе всех невзгод больнее.
Что нет невзгод, а есть одна беда —
Твоей любви лишиться навсегда.
