Sounds All-White to Me

Les Excellents Cinemas de Paris has a few places left for C'est la saison du blanc, its novel white-themed day for hungry cinephiles this Saturday, January 19. A clever way to experience these exceptional movie houses in a different light.

Here's the plan:

10 am. Meet at the Rex for a welcome brunch and a screening of No Country for Old Men, with Tommy Lee Jones.

1 pm Lunch at L'Arlequin. Menu is all-white. It will be followed by some short films and a few surprises.

4:30 pm "Gouter" at Le Balzac, catered by famous Angelina chocolatier, and feast on... Mont-Blanc, of course! Next comes a mini-recital with a few operetta airs by mezzo-soprano Xenia Fenice Ambrosio. It will be followed by a screening of -- oh, you guessed already! -- White Christmas. Yes, Bing and Danny.

8 pm Because the day's dining and entertainment will have merely whetted your appetite for more cuisine and cinema, the evening will conclude with an all-white meal at the Club de l'Etoile. A few excerpts from the film Chacun son Cinema, and then a pre-screening of Promets-moi, by Emir Kusturica, due out in theaters on January 30.

Cost for an entire day of movies, meals and fun: 65 € per person.
Dress code: White (of course!)
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Rex or the Balzac

Oh, I wish I hadn't missed this! AARGH! Just getting around to reading this post now... Probably for the best, though, as I was exhausted and pretty much out of commission this whole past weekend. Oh well -- will have to be for next time! Sounded like an excellent, full day though.
