Cinemas Quartier latin

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

As its name suggests, the Accatone is where fans of Pier Paolo Pasolini come to watch, and watch again, the masterpieces the most disturbing Italian director of his generation. His first film, ‘Accattone’, of course, but also ‘Teorema’, ‘Edipe Re’ and ‘Il Decameron’. This is an uncompromising cinema, set up on a narrow street in the Latin Quarter on the site of a former cabaret. Much like at the Cinéma du Panthéon, the armchairs facing the screen are embellished with names from cinema’s hall of fame: Kurosawa, Tarkovski, Rosselini or Hawks. The films shown are serious stuff, and in the original languages with subtitles, naturally. With around 30 screenings a week, Accatone is an excellent place to improve your cinematic knowledge.
