Cannes & the Cinema

Cannes Cinema

No other city in Europe honors the cinema as Cannes does. In the margin of the tsunami media which submerges Cannes during the Film Festival in May, the city lives and breathes throughout the year under the lights of the cinema. Thematic visits, a little tourist train, painted walls, cinema, museum and ephemeral project of a multiplex, combine in order to provide the magic of the 7th art to all. Cannes, a city which has as much talent as the stars that she welcomes.

Guided visits

Each Friday, the Palais des Festivals organizes guided tours in English and French to reveal to you all the secrets of the capital of the cinema.


Painted Walls

Within the context of its program of the neighborhoods smartening up, the city of Cannes initiated in 2002 the realization of murals fresco on the theme of cinema. These gigantic painted walls well honor the icons of the 7th art.

Little Tourist Train

The Train of the Cinema welcomes you for a trip along the Croisette or for a complete tour of the city crossing the neighborhood of the Suquet.

Cinemas in Cannes

Four Cinema theaters and the Salle Raimu welcome you throughout the year to discover the latest outputs.

Star-studded floor

Film directors, actors and other international celebrities from the 7th Art now leave a print of their hands and their signature on the Allée des Étoiles du Cinéma, for posterity, like in Los Angeles at the Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.
visites guidées en versions française et anglaise pour vous révéler tous les secrets de la capitale du cinéma.
