Le Champo

Movie-watching is a life-long marathon, so why not doing in the city that feels like a real-life film set?

by Daisy Muller

Inaugurated in 1938 in place of a bookshop, Le Champo was a popular haunt for film directors like François Truffaut and Claude Chabrol, who called it his "second university". A listed Art Deco building, it’s one of the most charming cinemas still in operation. In the 2000s, Le Champo was planned to be shut down, but they were canceled due to popular demand. French and international classics and art house films are screened daily, and once a month there is a film marathon from midnight till 7 AM. Buy a big bucket of popcorns and drinks, and brace yourself for an all-night binge-watching of only the best movies in history.
