Lonely Planet review

This branch of the ever-growing chain next to the Bibliothèque Nationale is the most ambitious yet, with 14 screens showing a variety of blockbusters and studio films, a trendy cafe, brasserie, restaurant, late-night bar, and shops specialising in DVDs, books and comics and graphic novels.

Inside the complex, Studio Harcourt , the mythical 1934-founded Parisian photography studio famed for its black-and-white portraits of film stars, has installed a hi-tech photo booth for glamour portraits at a fraction of the price of its studio sittings. The booth, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, uses continuous light rather than flash to snap glamorous black-and-white shots (four for €10).
