  • Ideally located a few meters of Bercy Village and the arena accor, the French cinematheque delights lovers! I started my visit with a lunch "the 400 blows": first crush. The meal was simple but excellent. I continued by a quick tour of the Museum and the permanent exhibition, which I really liked: head of Ms. Bates (Psycho), held of Yvan (Yvan the terrible), COGS machine (modern times)... Very impressive. I could not go to a movie but I got the catalog and I have already booked in advance 2 sessions. Indeed, I want go back to the cinematheque.

  • All in French, very small museum, mostly obscure movies. A true connoiseur of French cinema would love the place though.

  • L'expo de Kubrick est fantastique !
