La Cinémathèque Française

51 Rue de Bercy
Paris, 75012, France
TEL: 33-1-71-19-33-33

Home to more than 40,000 films—one of the largest collections in the world—La Cinémathèque Française was first established by Henri Langlois in 1936. Now housed in an asymmetrical white structure built by Frank Gehry, the center hosts daily screenings that often include rare and experimental movies as well as tributes to renowned directors like Steven Spielberg and King Hu. La Cinémathèque also contains an extensive library, rotating exhibits, and a three-story museum showcasing everything from a 17th-century camera obscura to vintage posters, props, and designer costumes, including a dress worn by Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind.

Insider Tip:

After your visit, stroll through the adjacent Parc de Bercy, where you’ll find a vineyard, fish ponds, a carousel, and a rose garden with more than 95 varieties.
