Paris: Des Chiffres et des Lettres

Lazy weekend in the city? Perhaps it’s time to visit those places you hear about all the time but never manege the time to see. You know, the new museum. Or MK2. Eye Prefer Paris finds it’s not just the film selection to love here:

The MK2 Bibliotheque is cinephile’s dream come true, housed in a huge glass complex with 14 luxurious and comfortable theaters. There is also a café, a restaurant with good solid food, bookstore, DVD store with a superior collection of popular and hard to find DVDs, and a movie memorabilia store. I especially like the restaurant with its all-red modern spacious interior and hip diners.

It is one of the few restaurants in Paris where the tables are spread out enough so that you don’t need a chiropractic adjustment because your shoulders have been cramped for two hours like in most Paris restaurants. It’s fun to spend the day here and I have had many enjoyable ones combing through the DVD store finding DVDs I’ve never seen before, having a long relaxed un-cramped lunch and parking myself in a Lazy-Boy type seat to watch a movie.
