To accompany the exhibition at the Wallace Collection, The Discovery of Paris, Watercolours by British Artists opening on 20 June, Ciné Lumière brings you a selection of films dedicated to other artists who have been inspired by the City of Lights.
Through recent films such as Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, to absolute classics including French Cancan and Charade, this mini season invites you to see Paris through the eyes of great directors who have contributed to Paris’s allure and charm, who have depicted it as a city of lovers and dreamers.
You might think you know Paris, but these films will make you see this gem of a city in a new light as you stroll along the Seine with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, sing and dance in Montmartre with Gene Kelly, chase after Ernest Hemingway in the Latin Quarter with Owen Wilson, and fall in love with the city all over again as you watch Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.
Tickets prices for the films in the ‘ Paris Seen By…’ series are £8, conc. £6
