GUEST PROGRAM BY LIGHT CONE AT THE MÉLIÈS THEATER (MONTREUIL)

To celebrate half a century of existence of the Montreuil movie theater that bears the name of the first magician of the cinematographic illusion, Light Cone presents a self-reflexive program on the origins of cinema, its fundamental elements, and the splendors of the cinephile experience. The program's starting point is none other than the inventiveness of Georges Méliès, who, thanks to a camera malfunction, accidentally discovered a trick that allowed him to make The Vanishing Lady (1896), simultaneously opening up so many possibilities for the seventh art. Experimental film would become the privileged arena of optical tricks, which are often laid bare and pushed to the extremes of spectatorial sensation, as well as a space of reflection on the medium through the medium itself.

This program is thus a multiple tribute – not only to the persistence of cinema and cinephilia that Le Méliès and Light Cone support, but also to photochemical film, which is increasingly rare on the screens. All the films in the program will be shown in 35mm, providing a precious opportunity to admire the depth of the color palette and the magical vibration of this indispensable format.
