About Friday's Films

6:00 PM | Le Gendarme se marie


The Troops get Married 1h32, 1968
The gendarme Cruchot meets the widow Josepha. They quickly fall in love but Cruchot's daughter doesn't like Josepha and is determined to prevent the wedding by all means necessary.



8:00 PM | Le Gendarme et les extra-terrestres


The Troops & Aliens 1h36, 1979
The bungling inspector Cruchot (Funès) finds himself trying to save the residents of St. Tropez from some oil-drinking humanoid aliens. The only way to tell the aliens from the real people, besides their constant thirst for oil-products, is that they sound like empty garbage cans when you touch them. Chaos is ahead.

New Cinema Programming

Starting this Spring, cinema is taking the leap at the French Cultural Center. We have revisited and expanded our programming to offer you new ways to experience the best of French and Francophone cinema. While continuing the monthly Ciné-Clubs to catch up on recent films from the Francophone world, we are launching Ciné-Rétro, a two-evening marathon to discover or re-discover some 1940s to 1970s French classics and Ciné-Loulous, where children and their families can enjoy French animated gems followed by arts and crafts activities inspired by the film. As always, you will be able to mingle and discuss the films with our in-house film expert, fellow cinéphiles and francophiles.

Sponsors

Ciné-Rétro: Le Gendarme is presented as part of ArtWeek Boston. This program is made possible thanks in part to the Mosaïque Cultural Fund and Steven Galante, Chairman of the French Cultural Center.
