The building is ugly, and without the big events the area is really worth nothing. We were told by locals not to spend our time there, and they were right!

An amphitheater in which the famous "Festival de Cannes" takes place. The Star Avenue in the form of imprinted celebrity hands leads to the famous red carpet. In the evening, the amphitheater is beautifully illuminated and harmonizes with the entire promenade.

It was an impressive building and there was a party in the balcony that normal people can only dream of. But I took great pictures in front of the front door, in the stairs.

I was expecting something different... the sure thing is that you can’t miss it, it’s a big building next to the sea ... the entrance was not permitted. I don’t know if you can go inside in general.
