~aventures du louchette flâneurse: 44ème~

December 28th, 2009

Edit, edit, edit all day, then, a date night. Alfonso surprised me with a trip to tiny art house cinema Studio 28 on the Butte Montmartre. The theater opened in 1928 as Paris’ first avant-garde cinema, and showed Louis Bunel’s L’Age d’Or not long after. The lobby displays the foot prints (not shoes, like Graumans, but the actual feet) of various actors, including Jean Marais, and the chandeliers that we found so enchanting we later learned were designed by Jean Cocteau, whose La Belle et la Bête (staring Marais) is a household favorite, and features the splendid human-armed chandeliers. An excellent evening.
