This month, four days a week on Thursdays to Sundays, there is a open-air  movie festival at the Parc de la Perle du Lac. They have some fun movies and the ambience is just perfect. They have set up a big screen at the bottom of a low hill which looks out over the lake. Lawn chairs are available for rent. Snacks and beer, of course. And the stars above, the lights shimmering on the lake, good company. Just a great idea and pulled off really well!

Last week, they showed Little Miss Sunshine, 4 Weddings and a Funeral, a short-film sampler, and Edward Scissorhands. This week, the Fifth Element, Good-bye Lenin!, Juno and Lost in Translation.
