Watch a film at Le Cinématographe
Though Nantes has a variety of cinemas, Le Cinématographe is certainly the quirkiest and the best value for money. The city’s oldest art-house cinema is tucked away on Rue des Carmélites, away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. In fact, you could almost pass it by entirely, if it weren’t for the hordes of students queuing outside. For the tiny sum of 3€, you can see a variety of independent French releases and cult classics such as Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and Vertigo (1958). It’s worth a visit just for the traditional red curtains alone.
