Mythical Items and costumes from the movies : Indispensable!Since 2005, this "House of movies" is settled in the Bercy's Gardens in a building designed by Frank O. Gehry.It offers three screening theatres, a museum, two major rooms for exhibitions...more
I went to the Cinematheque a few times when I was in Paris: to see the current exhibition (on Chris Marker), to see the film museum, and to view a couple films.
Entry to the Cinematheque building is free (and there is free wi-fi), and...More
I was lucky to be in Paris when they had a Chris Marker exhibition that I was thrilled about. The most disappointing thing was that none of the films and videos at the Chris Marker exhibition had any English subtitles. It was all in French...More
It is not the greatest museum, it is quite small, but it presents old equipment of cinema making which is quite interesting. I went there for the exposition on Clouzot so I did not stay in the museum too long.
But the exposition was very...More
The 2nd floor at the Cinémathèque Françsise is dedicated to a 'museum of film', where you'll find lots of old equipment for making those early "moving pictures" - and the machinery that projected them onto the big screen, back in the days.

They finally found a suitable use for this odd building that was a useless white elephant for many years. Now a major cultural institution. Watch for special expositions on the subject of film. They are terrific. Lots of films shown here.

Alfred Hitchcock was mates with the owner of the museum circa 1960's and donated a very important prop in 1960! It'll be a spoiler for you if you've not since the film before you see this prop though. There was a bunch of other cool...More
The museum is in an early Gehry designed building which, outside, is showing wear and needs a bit of a clean. Apparently it was not intended as the home of French Cinema but its first use failed shortly after it was opened in 1994 and...More
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
