Stop scrolling unless you want me to give away the answer.

Yes, you guessed it. The answer to four down in the July 11 NYT Mini Crossword is MOVIE. Fun fact: The first motion picture was recorded in 1878 by English photographer Eadweard Muybridge. He recorded a short film of a horse galloping to settle a bet. Admittedly, it’s probably not the best movie for a date night. But hey, I won’t judge. Better than the Titanic, at least.
