Covid-19 information : a health pass or a test taken within the last 48 hours is required at the entrance.

This is one of the essential summer meeting places in north east Paris. As the good weather arrives and the sun is setting later, the grass of the Parc de La Villette turns into a huge open-air cinema screening. With the blanket you may have wisely brought and some cushions (deckchairs are also available to rent on site for even more comfort), enjoy a full evening starting, why not, with a little picnic/aperitif before the films which follow a set theme.

For this 31st edition of outdoor cinema at the Parc de la Villette, pride of place is given to the real people who have inspired scriptwriters and directors. 28 films feature historical or political figures (including Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, Bertolucci’s The Last Emperor, Ridley Scott’s 1492 and Gus Van Sant’s Milk), artists (Milos Forman’s Amadeus, Tim Burton’s Ed Wood and Jane Campion’s Bright Star) and athletes (Michael Mann’s Ali).

Whether their lives were tragic or marvellous, these stories paint portraits of exceptional women and men who were figures of their time and of history.

Come and experience cinema in a new way in this most magical of theatres.

Films are shown in their original version with French subtitles. The programme is subject to change.
