On Saturday 16 May, the Musée d’Orsay is celebrating the 120th anniversary of cinematography, and will be transformed into the world’s most beautiful movie theatre for one night only. Projected on a giant screen installed in the nave of the former Orsay railway station, visitors will be able to watch for the first time or rediscover films from the great pioneers and illusionists of cinema, from Georges Méliès and his enchanting A Trip to the Moon to Charlie Chaplin, during a “Chaplin Festival” at 9 pm.
Charlie’s daydreaming silhouette will appear under the museum’s great clock.
Free admission! Check out the Musée d’Orsay’s website for more details.
