THE FILM : Midnight in Paris (Woody Allen 2011) 94 minutes
A charming romantic comedy which takes us back in time to Paris in the 1930’s and the writers, artists and larger than life characters who inhabited the city’s bars & bistros. Starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, and Kathy Bates. Very atmospheric, and a must for lovers of Paris.
Bar open all evening
