In 2022, the Pathé-Baby projector is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

This invention, marketed by Charles Pathé, was the start of the home cinema experience. With this revolutionary device using a new 9.5 mm roll of film, everyone was able to project and watch films in their own homes for the first time. To mark this centenary, the Jérôme Seydoux Pathé Foundation is offering a full programme of events: an unprecedented exhibition on the history of projectors and cameras for amateurs, workshops for young people, screenings, a symposium, a carte blanche, and a special day for people to watch their own 9.5 mm films using equipment provided by the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux Pathé. Exhibition runs from 6 September 2022 to 4 March 2023.

Officially recognized as a non-profit organization in 2006, the Fondation Jérôme Seydoux-Pathé aims to preserve, restore and promote Pathé's historical heritage, which consists of more than 10,000 films. The archives, which are regularly enriched by new additions, include a variety of collections: iconography and advertising materials, printed documents, equipment, objects, a library of books and periodicals, administrative and legal archives dating back to the founding of Pathé in 1896, as well as a collection of silent films containing approximately 4,000 titles. The building, designed by Renzo Piano, houses a research center, collection storage areas, a movie theater dedicated to the screening of international silent films, which features live music, and exhibition spaces.
