Museum Films Presents: French Film Month

In commemoration of Bastille Day, Museum Films is proud to present a month-long showcase of the best of classical and contemporary French cinema!

This year’s program features an original retrospective of newly restored masterworks by French New Wave filmmaker, Jacques Demy, and a hand-curated festival of new French films. 

Demy x 4

Screening each Thursday in July at 7:30

Born in the picturesque port city of Nantes, France — which serves as the setting for both Lola and Un chambre en ville — Demy is most well-known for his visually striking, exquisitely romantic homages to the classical Hollywood musical starring celebrated French actresses like Anouk Aimée and Catherine Deneuve.
