Ten compelling answers to the question “Why should I see the Paris Story film?”
1/ For anyone who isn’t a fan of standard, classic guides, Paris Story offers an enjoyable alternative that combines culture with pleasure. In just 50 minutes, we guide you through 2,000 years of the history of Paris, all in the comfort of your own comfortable seat.
2/ The hidden stories that you’ll learn – and that you can tell your friends about. For instance, there’s the tale of the visitor who got lost in the old underground mines of Paris at the end of the 18th century and never found his way out, or the story of the Pont de la Concorde, the Concorde Bridge, which was built using some of the ruins of the Bastille after the 1789 Revolution. These and many more anecdotes are yours to add to any conversation that you have about the City of Lights.
3/ You’ll discover a Paris that you never knew existed. The magnificent aerial shots filmed by the maestro of this art, Yann Arthus Bertrand, and projected on our panoramic screen. Places where the public are strictly prohibited, opened up for our cameras.
4/ Our central location with all its attractions. Paris Story is right next door to the Opera Garnier in a lively and chic quarter. Lovers, and Paris always attracts lovers, will find intimate places to eat on the Boulevard des Italians or on Rue Saint-Anne with its renowned Japanese restaurants. The Tuileries Gardens are just ten minutes away, on a beautiful walk that takes in the famous Rue de la Paix and the Place Vendôme.
5/ The Opera Garnier is a real focus for tourism in the French capital. Anyone keen on shopping will find the delights of the flagship Galeries Lafayette and Printemps department stores. There’s also easy access to the tourist bus for tours of the main attractions of the city.
6/ It’s ideal if you’re short of time in the French capital. Paris Story is the perfect choice because there are regular showings every day, between 10am and 6pm. You can easily take in the film before checking into your hotel, or if you’re waiting for your shuttle to the airport (the bus stop for Roissy – Charles de Gaulle airport – is just outside our front door) why not come in and give yourself a real treat.
7/ Since it’s both educative and entertaining, Paris Story is easily accessible for everyone, of every age. It’s an ideal family outing on a Sunday, for instance. We have special family rates available.
8/ Foreign tourists who don’t understand French will find themselves right at home. Everyone can enjoy Paris Story in their own language thanks to new technology. Our film is available in six languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch and Chinese.
9/ If there’s heavy rain or stifling heat, Paris Story offers a great alternative, especially if long feature films fail to hold your attention. At the end of the film, you can enjoy a drink at our bar – with free wifi access – or browse through one of the beautiful books on Paris that we have available.
10/ Finally, Paris Story offers you an opportunity to (re)discover your love of Paris!
