Paris and cinema: a love affair, shared by cinephiles from all over the world!

Truly, there is no greater pleasure for us at Lafayette Paris than to tailor-make a program for true Paris and cinema lovers! This is what we organized and operated last month for a group of American cinephiles a 4-day program with a combination of:

  • Paris visits, following the tracks of famous movies shot in Paris, old and new,
  • Must see visits like famous the Cinemathèque Française and historic old cinemas in Montmartre and Saint Germain-des-Prés,
  • Restaurants selected for their appearance in movies (“Something gotta give” for example) or connection with the film industry,
  • Seats for movies playing in historic « art et essai » theaters that week,
  • A memorable day dedicated to rare backstage visits, led by professionals, in famous studios whose names are familiar to cinephiles, and where all the work done to produce wonderful movies was explained to the participants : one of them being Hiventy laboratory, a famous post-production and film- restoration company, renowned also for their digital know-how and photochemical, located in an impressive historic site, built by Charles Pathé in 1906, just out of Paris,
  • A farewell visit to a 1946 left bank jazz club where the Oscar winning film “La la land“ was featured.
