  1. Hello! We are heading to cinema de la plage tomorrow night. Could you tell me, when you say get there early, how early should we be to get a deck chair. We need to ensure we get chairs, so just concerned how early we should get in to reserve the seats. Many thanks!


    • Hello Corinne, thanks for reading my blog! The film scheduled for this evening is Pulp Fiction (by Quentin Tarantino), it is expected to be quite busy as it’s a popular movie. The movie is due to commence at 9.30pm but I spoke to the Cannes Tourist Office yesterday and they said some people had been queueing for the films from mid-afternoon (4-5pm). I will also be there this evening after an aperitif in Cannes, we expect to head along about 8.30pm and try our luck. You can take a picnic with you, the weather is forecast to be clear but many people also take a blanket as it can get windy where the film is screened. Free public toilets are along the Croisette and open until midnight while the Festival is on.
