Jean-Jacques Schpoliansky, the director of this cinema since 1970.
The cinema shows above all independent arthouse movies.
On salles-cinema.com you can find more information about this art temple and an interview with Jean-Jacques Schpoliansky (in French).
I got this postcard via Postcrossing swap from Aldo. It was drawn by Francois Avril, in honor of Jean-Jacques Schpoliansky voted in 2002 to best operator of the year by Le Film français. I love this winter scene with so many people they want to enjoy a good movie (In the mood of love by Wong Kar-Wei is posted), some good hours in a friendly atmosphere.
