A first gold premiere is the debut (first public presentation) of a play , movie , dance , or musical composition . 
A work will often have many premieres: a world premiere and the first presentation in each country. When a work is done in a country that speaks different languages, it is possible to have two first ones for the same work in the same country-for example, the play The Maids by the French dramatist Jean Genet received his first British (which also happened to be its world premiere) in 1952, in a production given in French language. Four years later, it was staged again, this time in English, which was its English-language first in Britain.
Raymond F. Betts attributes the introduction of the film premiere to showman Sid Grauman , who founded Grauman’s Chinese Theater .
