  • The Cinémathèque française, it's a beautiful building in the middle of a park nearby Bercy metro station. They have free wifi access and a coffee place where I just had a coffee and a chocolate cake, the prices are cheap ( unfortunately I don't had food ). The total between the exposition, museum and a film ticket it's around 14.50 euros, was an amazing experience for me he whole thing and people it's nice and speaks English. The library and the bookstore are amazing!
  • Good place not in the center of Paris, was disapointed by the food at the cantin
  • A very nice place to visit for cinema lover.
  • All in French, very small museum, mostly obscure movies. A true connoiseur of French cinema would love the place though.
  • Visite passionnante
