Cinemas, a museum and a library… At the Cinémathèque Française, lovers of cinema will find everything they need!

A little history…

In 1936, four people took the initiative of founding the French cinema library, whose mission is to preserve and spread French and foreign cinematographic heritage through films, scripts, sets, posters, publications, cameras, photographs…Although installed in the Palais de Chaillot in 1963, the Cinémathèque moved to Bercy in 2005, in the former American Center building designed by Franck Gehry.

An eclectic cinema library

Four modern cinemas offer a diverse programme of films, major temporary exhibitions link cinema with the other arts and a permanent exhibition displays very old projection materials or costumes worn by the greatest Hollywood stars (Vivien Leigh, Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor, etc..). As for the library, it is one of the most famous archives in the world thanks to the richness of its collections: books, videos, DVDs, magazines, photographs and posters make up a considerable body of work fit to satisfy any cinephile. The Cinémathèque also proposes activities for children who will find a programme designed especially for them, as well as guided visits and courses during school holidays…
