In the mood for a movie during your stay in Paris? Then go to the shores of Canal de l’Ourcq, and try one of the two MK2 cinemas. On either side of the Stalingrad Rotunda, they show foreign films (in their original language) and follow international release schedules. We also like the MK2 Store, a boutique dedicated to books and DVDs about movies and cinema, with a special youth corner, and an area designed in association with Taschen, the famous Parisian bookstore dedicated to art, fashion and design. In the summer months, take advantage of the weather on the terrace, sipping a coke in the sun while admiring the boats that go by. To complete your MK2 experience: a visit to the boutique at cinema MK2 Quai de Loire. It is full of US imported treats, such as peanut butter M&Ms… delicious! After the movie, how about a nice walk along the Canal, or a Canal cruise with Canauxrama? The choice is yours!
