We think you'll find this space quite a surprise. As well as the obligatory smart showroom/exhibition space on the ground floor, the Renault Atelier (literally, workshop) gets our vote for the cosiest spot of all the car manufacturers.
Bright, airy and futuristic, their multi-level restaurant/bar serves pretty tasty food and not at ridiculous prices (rather rare in the area). Perhaps that's why they get almost 2 million visitors a year?!
Cultural event around the cinema on the Champs Elysees
The festival will operate with the same ambition as the first year: making the Champs-Elysées Avenue the meeting place for a popular, festive and cultural event around the cinema.
- A selection of eight independent American feature films. One of these films will be awarded the “Prix du Public” (Audience Award).
- A selection of over thirty five French and American short films, submitted to the public’s vote.
- Prestigious French and American movie premieres.
- The TCM Cinema Essentials. Thirteen feature films and documentaries, classics of the French and American cinema that have been restored for screening.
- A series of Master Classes during which audience members will be able to meet and interact with great filmmakers.
- A new program entitled “Jeune Public” (Young Audience) will feature movie premieres for children and cine-concerts.
All in all, more than sixty films will be shown over a hundred screenings in all the theaters along the Champs-Elysées.
The Balzac, the Gaumont Champs-Elysées, the Lincoln, the Publicis Cinema, the UGC George V and the MK2 Grand Palais.
