On this offbeat walking tour, we’re going to explore the birth and the Golden Age of the Cinema. Your expert guide will explain how the 7th Art evolved so quickly in just over a century, what technologies revolutionized the cinema, and how this industry went from a low class entertainment to a refined form of art.

From Place de la Concorde with views on the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysées, to place Vendôme, place de l’Opéra and the offbeat Grands Boulevards, you will retrace the history of the great people that made it all happen, including a few Frenchies like the Lumière Brothers. You will hit some iconic Paris sights and suddenly find yourself standing on the very spot you recognize from that movie you love, or where the cinema’s founding fathers broadcasted the first film projection.
