120 years of cinema in Angoulême


Gaumont continues to beat to the rhythm of the cinematic emotions, and has done so for 120 years now. After Paris, Singapore and even Burma, the exhibition, 120 YEARS OF CINEMA: GAUMONT, BORN WITH CINEMA unveils its wonders in Angoulême.


What’s on the program? Famous replicas, mythical places like the Gaumont Palace in Paris, collectors' items such as some of the first projection devices and cameras, posters, photographs, film extracts and so much more... Experience all the magic that cinema has to offer at this exhibition.

Until December 31, visitors will be able to relive the history of cinema thanks to exhibits from the Gaumont Museum, the Fairground Art Museum, film extracts, posters, costumes, old equipment and rare objects.

When comics and cinema collide
What could be better than the famous Comic Strip Museum and, more specifically, the Paradis Studios to travel through time amidst numerous illustrations?
For the most curious out there, you will be able to discover original pieces such as the replica of the roofs of Paris, but also the streets of the capital, making it possible to relive the most famous scenes of the cinema, such as this cobbled street journeyed by life-size film characters reminiscent of those in the film, Four Bags Full.


The love of cinema knows no age, so the exhibition is of course accessible to young and old alike, and is free to all.

A traveling exhibition
The 120 YEARS OF CINEMA: GAUMONT, BORN WITH CINEMA exhibition has already set off to meet cinema fans. A great success, the exhibition welcomed over 50,000 visitors in Paris. Next, it headed to Singapore and Burma. It is now in Angoulême, the capital of French cinema, where the exhibition will remain until December 31.


The exhibition was launched on July 3 in the company of Nicolas Seydoux, the Chairman of Gaumont, and François Bonneau, the President of the Department of Charente.
