Activities at Musée Lumière


Closure of the Lumière Institute and Lumière Cinémas   

Dear friends, dear moviegoers,

Due to the latest health measures announced by public authorities, the Lumière Institute is closing its doors and its activities (movie theatres, museum, galleries, bookstore, café) on Friday, October 30th for a period of one month. The “Best of” series of the Lumière festival and the Cinémas du Sud festival are therefore cancelled.

We will soon communicate conditions for extending subscriptions and refunding cancelled screenings.

We will keep you informed of developments on our websites and social media, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our locations.
