Cinema Montreuil – more news of English language films!

Click to see the week's full programme of screenings

The new English language film this week at Cinema Montreuil is “8th Wonderland“.

Set at some time in the future, it proposes the possibility of new “virtual countries” forming in cyberspace.  The “citizens” of these virtual countries are tired of the old corrupt and confrontational politics of the G8 nations and seek to bring about a new balance of world power.

Performances at Cinema Montreuil are scheduled for Friday 24 at 18h00, Saturday 25 at 21h45, Monday 27 at 17h30 and Tuesday 28 at 19h10.  Click the timetable above for the full week’s schedule.  (Films not dubbed into French are VO – those with French subtitles are VOST)

The Killer Inside Me” is also still showing for two more performances at Cinema Montreuil this week. You can see it on Thursday September 23 at 18h30 and Monday September 27 at 21h00.

We saw it last week and can thoroughly recommend it, although you need to be prepared for some brief moments of very graphic violence.

The violence, however is essential to the plot about a seemingly charming and friendly law officer in a small Texas town in the 1950s.  His sudden transformation into a vicious murderer shocks the town and his colleagues in the Sherriff’s department.  This is not a “Whodunnit”, it’s more of a “Can he get away with it?”

Cinema Montreuil – another must-see film!

Another brand new English language film that will be shown this week at Cinema Montreuil.

Jude Law and Forest Whitaker in "Repo Men"

This one looks gory, violent, dark, scary and exactly the sort of thing I would queue for hours and pay £15 to see in the West End.

Wouldn’t you much rather watch it in the comfort of what amounts to virtually a private cinema in Montreuil?  The ticket prices are about the same as they were in the West End when “Ben Hur” was the latest attraction.

Unfortunately we’ve been unable to show the trailer on this page, but you can see it by clicking on the link below. Continue reading “Cinema Montreuil – another must-see film!” »

Cinema Montreuil: Last chance to see…..

Wild Target (Petits meurtres à l’anglaise) is a very funny film in English (with French subtitles) showing at the Cinema Montreuil (the Theatre near General Haig’s statue).

Starring: Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt, Rupert Everett, Rupert Grint, Martin Freeman

Showing Saturday August 14 and Sunday August 15 at 20h30

  • Bill Nighy is Victor Maynard, a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins), despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring a young apprentice in the process, Tony (Rupert Grint). Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client (Rupert Everett).
  • Don’t miss this! And take your French friends – they think this sort of thing is “very British”
  • A cinema treat for Frogsiders and french friends

    Frogsiders Sue Sharp and Donna Kerridge have a French friend who does the PR for the cinema in Montreuil… “and for several months we have been gently nagging for an English film…or at least one with English subtitles”.

    And they have delivered with a screening of a gritty British film called ‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’ – you can watch the trailer here.

    It will be playing in Montreuil this Saturday 24th at 5.30 pm, Sunday 25th at 8.30pm, and Tuesday 27th at 8.30pm. It will be played with English audio and French subtitles, so bring your French friends too.
