Cinéma Paradiso at the Grand Palais
from 16th-26th June 2015

Art and Culture, Our favourite things

Cinéma Paradiso is a special event that turns the rather special Grand Palais into something even more mind-boggling – two giant cinemas with 25m large screens and a giant nightclub, plus live music, a bowling alley, a gourmet restaurant, dance lessons, video games, table football, a hair bar… and they’ve doubled their budget since the last edition in 2013!

Just one thing though – seeing a film will cost you between 34€ et 180€ ! Ouch!

Here’s all the info.

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival from 13th-24th May

Our favourite things

Although not strictly speaking in the capital, the Festival de Cannes is a major event in both the French and global calendar.

The official poster for this year’s edition has just been revealed, and a minimalist affair it is too, with a beautiful photo of Ingrid Bergman (who would have been 100 this year) taken by David Seymour of the Magnum Agency (with whom we collaborated for part of our PHPA photo project!).

Here’s all the info about the festival, including the selection of films which will be programmed at the Forum des Images in Paris.
