Cinéma en plein air 2012

22 Aug

No thunderstorms yesterday, the weather forecast apparently has not been that accurate. But the temperatures have dropped to a far more pleasant level and today the sky over Paris is blue, blue, blue.

Ideal for a movie night outdoors. Just as every year, the 2012 version of the “Cinéma en plein air”, titled “Métamorphoses”, at the Parc de la Villette will entertain you with a best-of of recent film as well as beloved, sometimes rare, classics and international highlights.

Good to know: the films are all shown in their original language version with French subtitles.

Before it ends on August 26, the Cinéma en plein air will screen quite a few more jewels of film history.

Today: Being John Malkovich by Spike Jonze, USA 1999

Thursday, August 23: L’Esquive by Abdellatif Kechiche, France 2003

Friday, August 24: L’Invasion des profanateurs de sépulture (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) by Don Siegel, USA 1956

I have never watched the movie in this black-and-white version (as in the movie poster above), I only know the recent version and the amazing makes-your-teeth-chatter version with Donald Sutherland. Hope I will get a chance to see it!

Saturday, August 25: Superman by Richard Donner, USA 1978

Sunday, August 26: Hair by Miloš Forman, USA 1979

The screening of the movies starts at nightfall, entry is free.
