Montmartre, eternal movie set

If the streets of Paris have been filmed thousands of times, it is especially the case of the charming village of Montmartre, the headquarters of the Terrass' Hotel! Its romantic and bucolic tunes have always seduced the whole world, notably thanks to Jean-Pierre Jeunet's famous film, "Amelie". The tourists can not stop praising Montmartre, as well as many directors who have chosen to make it their favorite place of filming!

It seemed natural for the Montmartre Museum, not far from the Place du Tertre and its famous painters, to set up an exhibition that lists all the films having Montmartre for decor. The original scenography, by geographical position, immerses the visitor in a total immersion and invites him to a route passing through Pigalle Square, Anvers and the Sacré Coeur, Blanche and the Moulin Rouge, Abbesses, Barbès ...

The course includes, of course, film posters, photographs, drawings, models, unusual film excerpts, costumes, scenarios ... You will see that the small cobbled streets of Montmartre, emblematic, were filmed during generations by movie directors such as Truffaut, Duvivier, Renoir, Lubitsch, Woody Allen or Michel Gondry, giving rise to mythical scenes that make the Parisian neighborhood an actor in its own right.

An exhibition that is worth the detour! And during the summer season, we also recommend lounging in the sun at Café Renoir, the tea room in the museum garden where you can enjoy delicious drinks and delicacies.
