This really is a must for the Paris cinephile: a great screen (with subtitles displayed on what looks like a POS device located below the screen) at only 6 euros the place, a program of mostly art films with featured directors covered in depth and extensive book/DVD shop.
I felt immersed in beauty coming here asI had the pleasure of watching Tati's "Jour de fête" at this theater.
Before and after the film you are able to peruse the exhibit, which is a treat if you are fan of the featured director. If not, it gives you an opportunity to learn more and become a fan.
The building itself being designed by Gehry is beautiful with its wonderful white curves and the theater is a cozy setting for your viewing enjoyment.
I will definitely be back to this theater when visiting Paris.
I had so much fun here for two reasons--The beautifully designed building by Frank Gehry and the Stanley Kubrick exhibit we saw. The main museum I wasn't as impressed with. I definitely was a bit disappointed because English is not present in the main museum, so I was a bit lost at times.
But the Kubrick exhibit was amazing! I was so excited to see a bunch of things from some of my favorite movies. I saw the little girls' dresses from The Shining! That's my favorite!
If you speak French, you'll enjoy it more and I'm sure they have very nice exhibits on other times too and I loved the Kubrick one!
