Open-Air Cinema at the Parc de la Villette
Every summer, Parisians traipse to the ultramodern Parc de la Villette in northern Paris with blankets and folding chairs. The open-air cinema is generally free and hosts at least one show each evening for around a month in July and August, with a program full of both classics and recent hits. Many of the films are shown in English, too. Pack a picnic and a blanket and come enjoy a good movie under the stars.
