La Cinémathèque française

51 rue de Bercy - 75012 Paris
Book now
Housed in a resolutely modern building designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Cinémathèque Française is entirely devoted to cinema. It continues to convey a passion for cinema through its many resources and activities, notably the Musée Méliès, exhibitions, screenings, meetings and talks, library, and a bookshop. Georges Méliès is known throughout the world as one of the first great cinema geniuses. Matin Scorsese pays a touching tribute to him with his film 'Hugo', and the image of the rocket in the eye of the Man in the Moon is now engraved on everyone's memory. The museum invites visitors to explore the life and work of this extraordinary character, and to embark on a magical journey through the history of cinema, where magic, wonder and science fiction combine, from the first films with special effects to more recent ones.
