Paris Seen by Hollywood

Paris Seen by Hollywood


Have you already seen Jean Seberg on Boulevard Saint-Germain? Audrey Hepburn on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower? Frank Sinatra dancing on the steps of Montmartre? We did, at the "Paris Seen by Hollywood" exhibition at the Hotel de Ville.


How has Hollywood represented Paris in its movies? Discover more than 100 movies shot in Paris along with previously unpublished photos, a crazy interview of Hitchock and even the secrets of Midnight in Paris' shooting. Last but not least, a century of films declairing their love to Paris are projected on an enormous screen.
We selected 10 extracts to watch again and again about the Parisian way of life.

"Paris seen by Hollywood" exhibition until December 15th
Hotel de Ville of Paris, the Saint-Jean room, 3 rue de Lobau, 4th
Open every day except on Sundays and national holidays, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Free entry.

Paris Superstar

'Today, I want to visit the Opera Garnier." For 3 days you’ve been cavorting around Paris with your friend Jenny.
