  • Show "Méliès to the 3D" very disappointing despite a nice presentation. A succession of cameras, a real lack of information about the various stages of the cinema, not modern enough. Very disappointing. Building with old atmosphere. However restaurant 400 nice shots.

  • This is niche museum, suitable only for hard core cinephiles. If you know the work of the French New Wave and are familiar with the works of Truffaut, Godard, and Resnais then this museum may intrigue...  more »
  • Not terrible, even for lovers, the height of the scenography of the place isn't at the height. With the expo admission is € 12, Hello the scam! The place is cold and lifeless. "Staff" on the other hand, it would be possible to form security to hospitality, a real catastrophe.

  • 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
