I apologize to those offended by antedatings.  I am trying to restrict my postings to more important discoveries.

movie (OED3 1911)

1909 _Philadelphia Inquirer_ 14 Nov. 10 (America's Historical Newspapers)  Then, as is his habit, after a few moments of thought, he resumed with a new picture -- as they would say in the "movies."
