Time Out says
A floating cinema and lunch spot in the heart of the Parc de la Villette.
La Péniche Cinéma dropped anchor on the Canal de l’Ourcq in 2008, just across from Le Cabaret Sauvage and La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie. The boat’s largest cabin, a projection room with a rollback canvas roof, hosts public screenings of films by little-known directors as well as debates, workshops, and other film-related events. The programming is eclectic and ambitious.
From March through August, the boat’s upper deck opens as a restaurant, La Table de Franckie, strictly for lunch (noon to 3pm) and Sunday brunch. The menu offers sophisticated home-cooked dishes (marinated meats, grilled veggies, gourmet salads and hot sandwiches) made with fresh, seasonal produce. The three-course menu is fixed at €16.
On occasion, the péniche also plays host to electro parties and other all-night festivities. The events program can be seen here.
