The annual outdoor Ciné Quartier film event in Cannes, which has become a beloved Riviera-wide summer highlight, returns this June.

It’s that time of the year again: Grab your honey, a blanket and a picnic, head on over to Cannes, and enjoy the wonderful al fresco movies the Mairie de Cannes and its partner Cannes Cinéma have on tap for you. Like its predecessors, this ninth edition of Ciné Quartier presents a stellar lineup of classic and contemporary movies at various open air venues across town all summer long.

The particularly enticing 2016 programme features a well-orchestrated series of cinematographic fan favourites, ranging from box office hits and glam movie stars who habitually grace the red carpet over at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, to diamonds in the raw that are yet waiting for their global breakthrough.
