Private organization located in the 12th district of Paris, the Museum of Cinema - Cinémathèque française has been taking place since 2005 in a building entirely designed by Frank Gehry. It is located in the heart of Bercy Park, not far from the National Library of France.
Considered one of the world's largest film databases, it has more than 40,000 films, and thousands of art-related items. The Cinémathèque française was officially born in 1936 under the leadership of Henri Langlois and Georges Franju. Her mission was to preserve the films, restore them and make them discover or rediscover to the public.
It is now possible to attend many retrospectives, as well as thematic temporary exhibitions on films, actors or directors of engineering. The museum also offers posters, drawings, archival files, magic lantern plates, costumes, props, scenery items, cameras and projectors.
