A movie: the Panthéon Cinema
Built in 1907 it’s the oldest Parisian cinema. Mythical room in the Latin district, it was the first to show foreign movies in their original version. Today the establishment is still active and shows independent movies from authors like Bruno Podalydès, Arnaud Desplechin, Claude Lanzmann, or Jacques Audiard. Funny story: the cinema holds a cosy bar decorated by Catherine Deneuve and Christian Sapet.
