…Ciné 32 is a timber-clad, five-screen cinema in the south of France by Encore Heureux.

…each theatre boasts a different color…

  • What a great find Katherine! I come and visit you every day here and your Tumbler and your posts are so fresh and inspiring. I think of you often too and wonder how you are. At some point, we must make a date in Chicago or San Francisco. Big hugs to you!
