Go on a guided tour of the fabulous Cité du Cinéma; the gargantuan movie studios dreamed up by French movie director Luc Besson.

Set within a former power plant, this site will transport you to the magical world of the movies, where anything is possible! See original props and costumes from major movies such as The Fifth Element, showcased within the dramatic 200-metre-long, 18-metre-high hall.

You’ll explore the Avenue des Studios and see the famous staircase from the cult-classic film Léon, as well as visiting the 9 film sets (when not in use), which together cover an extensive area of 2,000m2. While showing you around, your guide will tell you all kinds of interesting facts and entertaining stories about the site and the people who work here.

Lastly, you’ll get the chance to watch a film that documents the evolution of the ambitious project dreamed up by Luc Besson, giving you a unique behind-the-scenes view of how this “Hollywood-upon-the-Seine” came to be.

An interesting and unusual glimpse behind the scenes of the silver screen!
