Cool movie watching and hot cocktails at Comptoir Général

Chiller Au Cine Et Siroter Des Cocktails Caliente Au Comptoir Ge

You are late for the film? Don’t panic, at Comptoir Général Sunday night movie sessions are open as free access and totally free.

No worries, just chill. You can come and go during the projection, sip a colorful cocktail, grab a mite (houmous, yakitori, spring rolls…) and even chat with friends in this squat that has the allure of a handsome colonial house.

Because this unique space in Paris, well hidden near Canal Saint-Martin, is a hybrid combo between an arty venue, antiques shop, restaurant, bar… In short, a melting-pot dedicated to the ghetto culture with African influences.

Every Sunday night (from 6:30 pm to 11:30pm), the «classroom », a large room haphazardly furnished, morphs into a cinema-club for Le Cinébrousse. On the program? Alternative showcasing undergrounds works stemming from counter-culture.

Next session: Cryptopuzzle, a very unusual documentary film on the tracks of the Loch Ness monster, Big Foot, Yeti and other fantasy filled creatures (Sunday 6 February 6th at 7pm). Eugène Gabana’s Le Pétrolier, the fascinating story of an anti-hero from Burkina-Faso (Sunday, February 15th at 6:30pm).

We adore : watching a slightly off the wall  film in a XXL cabinet of curiosities where everything is for sale (de from your chair, to the paintings hanging on the wall, including amusing trinkets).

Also discover the new hot bar.

Le Cinébrousse, Film projections every Sunday night from 6:30pm to 11:30pm, free entrance.
