Although the films last only about 40 min I think it is worth the price to watch a movie in "la Géode". I bought a combi ticket at the science museum nearby. It costs 15? for students which I think is quiet ok. The screen of the cinema is really big. I watched the film "Under the see" which is... More

The dome-shaped cinema was amazing, the hour-long movie well worth the entrance price, I have never seen a 180 degree picture before and look forward to my next opportunity.

La Géode screens several (non-commercial) movies which last about 45 mins. Me and my brother went to see one about dragons, and I saw a documentary about Jerusalem as well. The screen is enormous, round, and basically everywhere around you. The dragon film was in 3D and it's pretty spectacular but I preferred a 360 degrees film like 'Jerusalem'. At... More

I arrived 10 minutes late and and did not wish to wait for the next show which was in 50 minutes. However, you can still get great pictures of the structure and the rest of the buildings in the science museum complex. The only drawback is that it's rather away from the centre, the surrounding area felt rather dodgy and... More

If you think you ever saw a big movie screen, come to here, you won't be disappointed. Come early to get the best chairs to see the movie.

180 degrees movie screen , gives you the felling that you are a part of every action ! I show a rolling stones festival years ago and I came back next day to live again this unique experience !

I thought it would be impressive, but I was disappointed. Perhaps many years ago, but not now anymore. And it's a bit expensive, so I don't think it is worthwhile.

Amazing from the inside. Get ready to feel the real 3D effect and experience the new IMAX technologie. PS: Do not try to steel the 3D eye glass

The real show was not bad (on pterodactyls), but rather short. It might have been impressive a few years ago, but today you can see better and longer 3D movies at (cheaper) cinemas. The IMAX was not immersive at all, you only get perhaps a 60-degree screen, in the end not much different from an usual movie theater. My 3D... More

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
