- Enjoy a Film Outdoors at Parc de la Villette

June 23, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Every year, Parc de la Villette on the outskirts of Paris plays host to a month of film screenings.

However, the difference here is that the cinema is outdoors, meaning you can enjoy lounging on the grass as you enjoy the programme of classic films and modern blockbusters on show on any evening between July 19th and August 21st.

The fact that this has become an annual event gives you some idea of its popularity. The park is a lovely setting, home to the entertaining Cit des Sciences museum and the striking Gode theatre.

"Cinma en plein air" is an extremely family-friendly event, both in the convivial atmosphere and the fact that attendance is free.

Many films are shown in English, while the park is served by two Metro stations, Porte de la Villette and Porte de Pantin.

This would be an ideal way to spend an evening if you are visiting Paris, and offers plenty of cheap hotels to use while you are here, including the pleasant Helvetia.
