The essentials

Making lists is an activity moviegoers are fond of. Every year, the same ritual: compilation of the ten best films, with comparative analyses, debates, heated discussions. But what about the ultimate list of the most outstanding films in the history of cinema? That is to say, those films that must be seen, those that have forever transformed the art of cinema, but also our way of seeing a culture, of understanding the world as well as our own lives? This program aims to tackle this challenge with nearly eighty films, produced between 1916 and 1960, while waiting for your lists!

June 20th - September 4th, 2022

All summer long, cinema's masterpieces will be shown on our screens during the programming series The Essentials. We take this opportunity to honor the talent of poster artists who have complemented these great classics with visuals as colorful as they are surprising.
