Calling all Louis de Funès fans, the legend himself has taken up residence at Cinéma Palace! The actor, with his infectious energy, hilarious grimaces and incomparable talent, is the subject of a new, comprehensive exhibition. Archives, drawings, models, costumes and... film extracts explore the comic power of this great entertainer. At the same time, a series of themed screenings provide an opportunity to revisit his classics (La Soupe aux Choux, The Wing or the Thigh and Don't Look Now... We're Being Shot At!).
