Paris on the Silver Screen

To see where scenes from films set in Paris were shot, check out Set in Paris Movie Tours, which have daily walking and small bus tours in English from their cool Latin Quarter headquarters. Bonus points for their blog post Top Ten Music Videos Shot in Paris. The big film news in town this season […]

What the King Heard

This year 18 Baroque concerts will be performed now throught November 9 at 3 different venues for a one-time price of […]

Summer’s Last Gasp

Summer isn’t quite over yet, despite the cool, wet weather in Paris the past two weeks. There are many events for the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris (August 1944), including a free sound and light show tomorrow evening commemorating the historic events followed by live dancing and a Bal Populaire (dance party) on […]

Bastille Day from Far and Near

No matter where you live, you can commune with Parisians today, the national holiday known simply as “July 14th” (only outside of France is it known as Bastille Day). The National Orchestra of France will play a classical concert with a theme of “War and Peace.” The show, which takes place on the Champs de […]

The Fete Chez Moi

I am too tired to go out for La Fete de La Musique tonight, but thankfully, it came to me. There’s a chorus outside my building singing along to piano accompaniment. All the songs are in English (why?). “Because ze weend ees ‘igh / eet blows my mind…”

Spanish Indie Film Fest

I’m an admitted snob in terms of preferring France over all other European countries. To the point where I know very little about the culture and history of Italy, Germany and even England. But thanks to this week’s “Different 7″ I’m finally getting a taste of one of Gaul’s neighbors. And I’m loving it! “Different […]

Shakespeare in the Park…in English!

Guest post by Arthur Ford The Tower Theatre is returning to Paris to perform in the Theatre de Verdure for the 23rd time this summer. Behind this dry statistic is an amateur theatre company that can’t believe its luck to be a part of the Jardin du Shakespeare festival in the lush surroundings of the […]

Play Readings in English

Nearly every Sunday evening, a cast of actors read the plays of local writers at Carr’s Pub & Restaurant, 1 rue du Mont Thabor, 75001 (métro Tuileries). Fans gather for a beer beforehand and continue with feedback for the author and discussion after the reading. It”s a fun way to meet great people and to […]

Radio Free Paris

The spherical Maison de Radio France overlooking the Seine just south of the Eiffel Tower is home to the family of state-run radio stations in France (including my two favorites, the eclectic Fip and the only decent French rock station, Le Mouv’). But you can also attend live music shows as they’re recorded, including “Un […]

Is This Racist?

Recently I went to see “Qu’est-ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?” with two friends.  If you haven’t seen any trailers for it, the basic storyline is about a good Catholic (white) French family who very unhappily ends up with four “foreign” son-in-laws.  It’s not something I would normally see, but both my friend’s in-laws […]
