Cinema with your sweetheart

French kissing or stolen kisses, the dim lighting in cinemas creates a romantic atmosphere for couples in love

The Kiss by Rodin, jardin des Tuileries, Paris © OTCP - Amélie Dupont

Big stars such as Simone Signoret and Serge Reggiani or Arletty and Jean-Louis Barraux have been immortalized kissing on screen.

At the MK2 Bibliothèque and MK2 Quai-de-Loire cinemas, couples in love can nestle in each other’s arms in a cosy red two-seater armchair (without arm rests). Red also, but in leather, the sofas of the Théâtre Ciné 13, in the romantic Butte Montmartre neighbourhood, have been specially designed so that couples can spend their evening entwined.
