Cinematheque Francaise

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in the east of the city centre in the Parc de Bercy on the north bank of the River Seine. The building was designed in a Post-Modern style by noted American architect Frank Gehry, and built in 1994 as the American Center, an arts and cultural venue, which was closed in 1996 due to debts.

Taken over from its American owners by the French Government in 1998, it was leased to the Cinematheque Francaise. The three auditoriums show daily screenings from its archive collection of 40,000 films (the largest in the world). The largest auditorium is the 415-seat Henri Langlois Theater. There is also a Museum of Cinema, and a very large library within the building.
