This is where all self-respecting film buffs should head first. Housed in the contemporary Frank Gehry-designed building overlooking Bercy Park, the Cinémathèque is both a cinema museum (with a permanent collection as well as many temporary expos) and a theatre showcasing particular directors, periods, or styles from France and around the world.

Opening Hours:
weekdays except Tuesday noon-7pm (until 10pm on Thursdays) and weekends 10am-8pm. Screenings daily, see the website for the full schedule.

Tickets: Permanent collection (Passion Cinéma), €4 (€2 for kids under 12); €7-€9 for temporary exhibitions. Discount tickets available online if purchased for weekend mornings between 10am and noon.

Services: There’s also a cinema library and research center. A café should be opening in 2007.
