The surreal Cinéma Majestic.
Behind a completely uninteresting run-down façade on rue Henri Proust lies the entirely renovated CINÉMA MAJESTIC. In an era of pinched multi-screens, what a pleasure to sit in a large real cinema with the best, most comfortable seats ever, and full 2002 Dolby surround sound. Run by the town's cinema fanatics, this wonderful institution presents films in French of course, but they are the latest releases. Sometimes they run themed programmes and special events - for example 'Fanfan la Tulipe' or 'Le Bossu' and other Musketeer films durng the biennial Festival of the CAPE AND RAPIER. How Can-Cannes compare?
Seat prices generally €6 with reductions for children
