If you’re a movie buff, then you’ll discover cinemas in the French capital that will not disappoint. Whether you want to marvel at the wonders of avant-garde filmmakers, or simply find a cosy cinema-house in which to enjoy a Hollywood blockbuster, there’s a great choice of places to go. Some of the cinemas are even on river barges! Here is our list of 10 of the best.
The Anako barge, in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, is moored near the lively quai de Seine. The barge is bustling with fun during its summer festival, l’Eté du Canal, when the boat is transformed into an entertainment hub on the waterfront. As well as sport, and cultural activities such as concerts, dances, water-based leisure activities, street-art, and parties, the open-air cinema draws the crowds to the water’s edge. The cinema screenings are less frequent than at La Péniche Cinéma, but there’s a more bohemian vibe here. Whichever time of year you decide to visit, you’re in for a unique experience – every month, a region in the world is put in the spotlight with a changing programme of events to suit the theme.
