Friday Film Screenings with the Palais Galliera, Paris

One of the top museum exhibitions in Paris this fall is Les Années 50, La Mode en France, currently showing at the Palais Galliera, the city’s fashion museum which reopened last year after an extensive renovation. Vogue Paris says “Don’t miss it!” and our own Arts correspondent Sylvia Davis explains how “the 50s were a pivotal decade for French haute couture, risen from its post-war ashes to reign eternal.”

In conjunction with the expo—which will run until November 16th—the fashion museum has teamed up with the Grand Action Cinema to present a series of classic film screenings. Every Friday evening, you can catch a movie which highlights how 1950s cinema was inspired by “the golden age of French haute couture.”

To quote the official website: “French fashion has always been an inspiration for filmmakers. This selection of 16 films paints a picture of the style and elegance of a symbolic era which established Paris as the capital of fashion and filmmaking.”

Films include Howard Hawks’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Jean Boyer’s Fernandel the Dressmaker, Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, Dreams by Ingmar Bergman, and Roman Holiday by William Wyler. The films are screened at 8 pm at Le Grand Action cinéma (5 rue de Ecoles, Paris 5eme), every Friday until October 31st. (Entry is 9 euros.)
