Studio 28

Studio 28
18th arrondissement

If we had to keep only one cinema in Paris, it might well be Studio 28. Perched high up in Montmartre, this mythical venue has seen a parade of living legends and great classics of cinema pass through its darkened rooms. It opened in 1928 with Abel Gance’s avant-garde masterpiece ‘Napoléon’, and since then hasn’t stopped offering the public the best feature films of every era. Charlie Chaplin, Luis Buñuel, Franck Capra and even the jack-of-all-trades Jean Cocteau have all put in an appearance here. Conceived as a crossroads between cinema and other art forms (photography, painting), the cinema stands out principally for its nostalgic atmosphere. Tea in a shaded garden? Photography exhibition? Avant-première? Here, nothing is impossible.
