Fans of quirky American film director Tim Burton can now view a large collection of his artwork at the Cinémathèque Française in Paris. This eclectic art exhibition has already proven to be a huge hit in New York, Toronto and Melbourne and is set to cast an alluringly dark tint on the Paris art scene.
Although flying to Paris is a quick and convenient way to reach the city, it is easy to find fantastic package deals on the Eurostar and this is a great way to save money. The money that you save by traveling on the Eurostar can then be used to treat yourself to a night out on the town in Paris and spend time discovering some of the other impressive attractions that this vibrant city has to offer.
Paris is a major tourist hotspot, which makes it easy to find the ideal hotel located close to the exhibition. Cinematheque is located close to the Seine, which means that visitors will be able to secure a hotel overlooking the river and take a scenic stroll along the banks of the river in the evening.
This is the perfect opportunity to visit Cinematheque in Paris and discover why this is one of the most celebrated art venues in the whole of France. The exhibition will contain hundreds of drawings that were used to create many of Burton’s colourful characters as well as designs and film artefacts such as costumes and props.
Tim Burton rose to fame in 1990 after directing the cult film Edward Scissorhands starring Johnny Depp and Wynona Ryder. Since then he has had success with a whole host of films showcasing weird, wonderful and often rather dark characters including those portrayed in Sweeny Todd, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Dark Shadows.
