Displaying the kind of community spirit (not to mention prices) that has been all but snuffed out in the city centre, Le Ciné 104 is a heartwarming reminder of what cinemas once were – and can still be. It’s a genuinely popular place, its diverse programme of new releases, second-run films and hidden gems (many from the Maghreb) attracting the Pantin banlieusards in droves. The personable staff are clearly committed to the locals, ensuring that ticket prices stay at the €4-6 mark, and putting on various events targeted at special groups: Q&A sessions for students, screenings of local artists’ work, even film classes for kids. It may be a trek from central Paris, but this cinema is worth every minute spent on the RER.
