Get dolled up for the Palais des Festivals
This is the granddaddy of cinemas in Cannes because it’s where all the major films are screened during the Cannes Film Festival in May. The first Palais des Festivals was built on the Croisette in 1949 but it was superseded by this one, on the water, which is much bigger and can cope with the crazy foot traffic that come during the major movie premieres. It’s also home to the annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. It’s at the top of the famous Croisette and has a staggering 18 auditoriums, two of which are the most famous – the Debussy Theatre and the Lumière Theatre.
