Specialist cinema with films in VO. This was a church and still has some of the old windows. Food and drinks are served outside in a pretty square

See the latest movies (French & Foreign) for as little as E4.00 enjoy a coffee or glass of something before or after the show, or stay for lunch or dinner. Great location & beautiful building! A good place to meet friends.
