Let’s face it, January isn’t the most exciting month of the year, what with going to back to work after the festive period and all of those ambitious detox plans dictating the social calendar. But you don’t have to retreat to your cave completely and hibernate for the whole month, Janaury is by far the best time of the year to hit the cinema.
Not only is the air thick with the anicipation of the fast approaching awards season (the Golden Globes take place tonight, kicking off the festivities), but cinemas in Paris tempt you through their doors this month with a smashing, great value selection of festivals packed full of awesome films to see.
If you missed any of the best films of 2013, then never fear as they appear once again for a limited time on cinema programmes. UGC’s Les Incontournables programme is in full swing, available to all those in possession of a UGC fidelity card or those who managed to remember to cut out the coupon in Friday’s Le Figaro, where places are 3 euros each.
For those who missed the boat, you can still take advantage of Télérama’s Festival Cinéma where a selection of some of the best films from last year can also be seen for just 3 euros (though you need to buy a copy of Télérama on the 15th Janaury to get a pass). At Gaumont Pathé too, you can find a good deal – until 2nd February, all places are buy one get one free. Just try and exercise some self control when it comes to popcorn though…
