When summer comes, one of the delights of the season’s warm evenings is the chance to enjoy movies beneath the stars. In Paris, several festivals are devoted to the pleasures of the 7th art in the open air. Later in the season, interior design professionals meet at Maison et Objet, a major trade fair at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre. To fully enjoy these events, opt for a room at the Hotel Daunou Opera, which boasts a luxurious setting close to the Opéra Garnier, the Louvre Museum and the Place Vendôme.
All the fun and thrills of the big screen, outdoors in the heart of Paris
During the summer months, as night falls, the capital’s outdoor film festivals offer free screenings of big screen favourites and cult movies. Events such as Films Sous les Etoiles in the Domaine de Saint-Cloud in June are a real treat. The Toile Sous les Etoiles is offered at the beginning of July in the grounds of the Château de Vincennes. While Cinéma en Plein Air in the Parc de la Villette offers films on a different theme each year. Fans of the 7th art can enjoy outdoor screenings all summer with friends, family or even solo.
