We’ll be switching between Club de l’Etoile and our usual location Studio 28 every other week to give you the best of both worlds. Located just off the Champs Elysees (2 blocks from the Arc de Triomphe!), Club de l’Etoile offers a stunning, modern, new cinema room to enhance your Parisian cinema experience! We will also be offering a much greater variety of French-inspired food and beverages during our cocktail hour before the screening – choose from wine, beer, cider or champagne and enjoy some handpicked French snacks before and during the film. Food truck ‘French Toque’ will be serving delicious gourmet French burgers from 8pm!
‘What does it take to fight a pandemic? Knowledge, courage and resilience, certainly, but also rough-and-tumble argument, a range of friendships both consoling and abrasive, a healthy sense of gallows humor and soul-sustaining supplies of loud music and louder sex. French writer-director Robin Campillo understands all of this in “BPM (Beats Per Minute),” his sprawling, thrilling, finally heart-bursting group portrait of Parisian AIDS activists in the early 1990s.’
‘Early 1990s. With AIDS having already claimed countless lives for nearly ten years, Act Up-Paris activists multiply actions to fight general indifference. Nathan, a newcomer to the group, has his world shaken up by Sean, a radical militant.’
