We would be tempted to believe, even to say, that we know the story by heart And yet, we could well learn a little more. NTM is the story of a group of friends who took over the hip-hop movement that had just arrived in France, to make it their means of expression. With Suprêmes, Audrey Estrougo stages the sensational beginnings of French rap, embodied by the legendary duo formed by Joey Starr and Kool Shen. Released in December, the film arrives on the screens of Méliès during two screenings, one of which, in Saint-François, will be followed by an open mic with DJ FAB from the Les Bugnes collective. So, if you think you have a good flow Go!

Placed | Back to the educator box for Nessim Chikhaoui. For his first feature film, the co-screenwriter of Tuche and Doudou digs into his memories and signs a comedy deeply rooted in the social reality of shelters for minors and young adults. Meeting during the Sarlat Festival.

Vincent Raymond | Wednesday, January 12, 2022

What is personal in your film? Nessim Chikhaoui: I was an educator in a MECS (social childhood home) for 7 years in Draveil, and then 3 years, in AEMO (educational assistance in an open environment) where we follow young people who are still at home. Many situations in the film are real and experienced, others fictionalized. Its important for me to show this aspect of the job, which you dont necessarily see in all documentaries. Well, there are still a lack of social workers, psychologists, but I couldn't include everyone, so we focused on educators and young people for scriptwriting reasons. There are already a lot of characters. Why does your hero land in this environment after missing the Sciences-Po competition? The idea was to bring along someone who was not at all destined to do this profession.. Me, I would have liked to be a sports or CPE teacher, but we chose something quite high and a diploma that speaks to everyone. In fact, I

In one of these streets that the curfews plunged into darkness, we are celebrating again. We now also eat Thai food there, thanks to Chan. We are on rue Désirée.

Cerise Rochet | Monday, January 3, 2022

Known for his light comedies during the 1930s, director Georges Stevens, documentary filmmaker for the American Army during the Second World War, will forever be marked by the horror discovered in the extermination camps. In 1959, he adapted The Diary of Anne Frank for the cinema, while the book has already sold millions of copies around the world. Sublime in its ability to reflect the feeling of confinement of the characters in their hiding place, at the same time as their anguish and the strong ties that unite them, this film proves to be a very faithful transcription on the screen of the teenager's work. To see or see again at the beginning of January in Saint-Etienne. Le Journal d'Anne Frank, by George Stevens on January 6 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the cinematheque in Saint-Etienne.

Cerise Rochet | Tuesday, January 4, 2022

In Saint-Etienne, Le Méliès has its “ambassadors”. In Saint-Chamond, Le Véo Grand Lumière will soon have its “team”. The idea? Familiarize young people with the cinema, allowing them to participate actively in the life of the structure. To enable young people to develop their taste for films at the same time as their knowledge, the Véo is now opening its backstage to volunteers. A first team will indeed soon have the task of participating in the programming of the cinema. A second, accompanied by a group of professionals, will be responsible for working on the development of a film festival. A final group will be given between 2 and 3 invitations per month to come and see films at the cinema, and then share their feelings via video clips or written testimonials, relayed on the cinema's social networks.

Cerise Rochet | Tuesday 30 November 2021

Co-constructed and organized by the TRACES network and many of its partners, the Images Migrantes 2021 will stop in Saint-Etienne from December 3 to 5. An event intended to question issues related to exile and migration, based on the screening of films and documentaries. After the invocation of "spectacular" images, of "extraordinary" stories to deal with these questions, cinema and the production of documentaries today seem to want to be more interested in the intimate and in the detail, entering in fact in a sort of "normalization" of representations. From the reception of unaccompanied minors to the question of accommodation, the right of foreigners to interpreting, 9 themes will thus be addressed through the screening of 11 films, at the Méliès Saint-François on Friday evening, as well as at the Secular Association

SCREENS | Les Ambassadeurs du Méliès are high school students who love cinema, who see the latest theatrical releases, and who share their favourite. Today, Amélie and Soheil are talking to us about their "Nugget" of the month, Les Magnétiques, the first feature film by Vincent Maël Cardona.

The editorial staff | Monday, November 15, 2021

For Soheil, Ambassador of Saint-Paul High School: “An evocative title, a film that will please everyone” An evocative title for Les Magnétiques, which refers to radio but also to cinema. Brittany, during the 1980s. Philippe and Jérôme, two brothers linked by a common passion for the airwaves, run a clandestine radio station. The first is the "sound engineer" of the second, his eldest, a presenter. Everything comes to an abrupt end when the two brothers are called up for military service. Love for an immature brother, talent and devouring passion for the radio: the film Les Magnétiques will please everyone, with a pleasant return to adolescence for some. For Amélie, Ambassador of the Jean Monnet high school: "a bittersweet sensation" Les Magnétiques leaves a bittersweet sensation, inspired by the gray and fragmented life of the main character, despite everything punctuated by more vivid moments, where passion pierces him. The images in this film can be surprising, often quite cold, quite dull, but regularly penetrated by flashes of color that reflect the atmosphere of the 80s.

Petit Bulletin SAINT-ETIENNE - Cinema Saint -Etienne: Brasserie - It's still moving at Méliès - article published by Nicolas Bros

In the cinemas of the territory as everywhere the managers of the rooms are still far from euphoria. In Saint-Etienne, the director of the Le Méliès cinemas, Paul-Marie Claret, monitors his figures day by day, and is quite worried: "We have rather had a very good restart... And then, the establishment of the health pass has had a very strong impact on us. The week it was implemented, we recorded a 50% drop in our attendance. And it continues, since for 3 weeks, we are at -40%. »At the Cinétoiles de Sainte-Sigolène, the situation is much the same. Associative, managed solely by volunteers and single-screen, the establishment also seems to have suffered from the implementation of the pass: "We know that among our usual audience, some no longer come because of that, explains Marie-Françoise Coste, the president of the association. At the beginning, some even tried to convince us to let them go without... Today, we are not "worried" strictly speaking, but we nevertheless wonder how we could attract more spectators, and especially young people.

Rooms | After buying the Alhambra and the Red Truck, the Megarama group undertook substantial work in the former. While changing the names of the two cinemas from Saint-Etienne.

Nicolas Bros | Wednesday, June 30, 2021

After taking over the Alhambra (place Jean-Jaurès) and Camion Rouge (near the place Chavanelle) cinemas almost a year ago, Jean-Pierre Lemoine's Megarama group has given these two establishments its own flavor . While the Camion Rouge has simply changed its name (becoming Megarama Chavanelle) and replaced its cash desks and software, the now ex-Alhambra (now Megarama Jean-Jaurès) has undergone numerous works. A budget of 5 million euros has been invested in the cinema to take over the reception hall, the toilets, the rooms and the seats. On the other hand, the three large rooms have been equipped with laser projectors while the screens have not been touched. With this great breath of fresh air, combined with the reopening of the dark rooms, the new owner intends to give a boost to these two establishments which had lost their luster over time.

SCREENS | A new VOD streaming platform will see the light of day on June 19 and it is from Stéphanoise. Directed towards independent films (especially short films, series and documentaries), SOFA Vod could be talked about.

Nicolas Bros | Wednesday, June 9, 2021

This is a project from Saint-Etienne that has ambition by positioning itself in the very competitive market of video streaming. SOFA Vod is a platform designed by a quartet who intends to carve out a place in the sun in this merciless digital world. If the general public necessarily knows the behemoths that are Netflix or Amazon Prime, there is a multitude of offers in the sector. But this fact did not scare Maxime, Guillaume, Alexis and Kévin, who decided to take the plunge. "All four of us were content creators," explains Maxime Bonzi. We quickly realized that the fiction format was not necessarily welcome on YouTube, which instead puts forward face cam or humorous videos. There are a hundred short films that are published on the Internet every day and this offer is drowned in the mass. There was therefore a strong demand for a service to highlight works of fiction. Based on this observation, the four acolytes decided to create their structure in parallel with their activities. Two subscription formulas and a new feature

Prem's! | Le Méliès celebrates with dignity the reopening of theaters on May 19 with an enticing program and event screenings from 6am. Because the big screen doesnt wait.

Vincent Raymond | Monday, May 10, 2021

In truth, we expected no less from its teams: a burst of brilliance and a boost to revive the luminous life of the dark rooms in style. By offering a breakfast from 6am accompanied by two previews on Wednesday 19 May, the Méliès is creating an event within the event of the reopening. First, the screening of the new Céline Sciamma, Little Mum (on screens June 2) and then If the wind falls by Nora Martirosyan, both in the official selection of Cannes and that of ACID last year . These two films swallowed, you can continue with the 10am sessions. And there is plenty to choose from among the new releases: the excellent and long-awaited Mandibules by Quentin Dupieux, Slalom by Charlène Favier, Falling by Viggo Mortensen as well as LÉtreinte by Ludovic Bergery. Also on the program for this revival, revivals (precisely) of films that left the poster prematurely: Adieu les cons haloed by his César

Vincent Raymond | Friday January 22, 2021

Many things are attributed to Jean-Luc Godard. Especially aphorisms. And in particular the one claiming that it is "impossible to go out with a girl who does not share your cinematographic tastes" sentence which, if it is not apocryphal must obviously be put in the context of the time, be it said to the furious about the canceled culture. Behind the joke, it must above all be understood that the unconditional love of a couple of spectators-cinephiles cannot be altered by differences of appreciation: in the cinema, the two lovebirds remain fused and look in the same direction at the spectacle of the great screen, together savoring the magic of theatrical projection when they like the film when they don't, then they roll their shovels and the matter is settled. All this to say that the relationship of love with the screen is serious business! This unbreakable even passionate link between the public and the room, Les Méliès invites its spectators to tell it by searching their memory through the operation Remembering the beautiful things.

It's official as Le Parisien explains, despite the request of the Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot, the cultural sector will not have a relaxation of the rules of the curfew which comes into force in the Saint-Etienne agglomeration this evening. Theaters and cinemas will therefore have to comply with the same rules as the others. As a result, cultural establishments are beginning to try to adapt. In addition to the events already concerned tomorrow (such as the Fraternities concert at Saint-Charles Cathedral or that of Joseph Chedid at the Pax), others should follow in order to maintain cultural activity. Here are some examples: - On the side of the Comédie de Saint-Étienne, it is explained that “from next Monday at La Comédie, we will define the adapted times for each show broadcast until December 1st. – At the Chok Theatre,

Following in the footsteps of its big brother, the second edition of Kino 3000 from Saint-Etienne will be held from September 5 to 12 at the premises of Ursa Minor, at the heart of the Mosser site.

Wearing a mask will now be compulsory during cinema screenings, theater performances and in other cultural places. The Prime Minister announced it this morning on the antenna of France Inter, where Jean Castex answered questions from Léa Salamé. The decision was taken Tuesday during the defense council. If he added “yes, I say to French women and men: go to the cinema, go to the theater, you risk nothing”, it will therefore be necessary to be masked. Which, obviously, should further reduce attendance at cinemas already heavily impacted since the start of the health crisis. The date of implementation of this measure has not yet been communicated but should be effective soon.J

The editorial staff | Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Complete blur at the Zénith "Very honestly, we don't have a lot of visibility in the fall" Sylvie Liogier, director of the Zénith Saint-Étienne does not hide her concerns... "We are closed until at the end of August, with postponements of shows to the end of the year and to 2021. If we can play under "normal" conditions, that is to say with hydroalcoholic gel, a choice left to the spectators to wear or not the mask and without distancing, it will resume normally. If the 4 m² rule is still there, it's not playable! If we can only get 1,500 people into the Zénith, it's not profitable and not comfortable for the public, who come to relax. » For the largest room in the department, the economic impact is very significant. " It's catastrophic. If we could not play until January 2021, it would be an impact of more than one million euros … confides the leader. I don't know of a company that can last with two months of revenue and 10 months without revenue. We know that there are periods that are calmer than others, but this is not tenable either for us or for the

We would never have imagined seeing them in Lyon at this time of year. But for those familiar with the Croisette, May 2020 is experienced on the cobblestones, far from the beach. Also far from the dark rooms, the spans of the film market, even evenings renowned for their splendor. At a time when exhibitors and distributors hope to glimpse the end of the tunnel with a whispered reopening for mid-July, while filming begins to be rescheduled under highly secure conditions , producers continue to work so that there still have cinema on the screens tomorrow.

The establishment will open in early November 2019, will be called Le Cercle and will offer "bistronomic" cuisine.

Nicolas Bros | Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Since 2016, the Opéra de Saint-Étienne no longer really had a fully-fledged catering offer. Since the failure of the company that operated the former Café Jules, this relaxation area of ​​the Saint-Etienne performance hall was still without a permanent restaurateur. After several consultations launched by the City of Saint-Étienne, the buyer has finally been found. It was the project led by Benoît Masson that was finally selected. Already the buyer of the restaurant at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Saint-Étienne, this self-taught entrepreneur will see the opening of his second gastronomic establishment. “We are going to open this new restaurant/bar at the Opéra de Saint-Étienne in early November,” explains the manager. It will be called The Circle. A name we chose for several reasons. First of all, after the Carré des Nuances at the MAMC, it is a restaurant that also takes place in a place of art. Then, the whole graphic charter as well as the environment of the opera is rounded off. Finally, it is also a nod to the famous Grand Cercle, well known to the locals, which existed on the Place de l'Hôtel-de-Ville. »

Exit DesArts//DesCinés, welcome to DAN.CIN.LAB. The Stéla association, after having supported the DesArts//DesCinés festival between 2010 and 2018 on the relationship between dance and cinema, has decided to slightly redirect its action. Since the start of the 2018 school year, it is a new platform that allows the association to structure its action around different areas of work of projects combining dance and image. Thus, four activities are involved in this new project: DAN.CIN.FILMS for the production of dance projects for the screen, DAN.CIN.PASS. for the support of professional choreographic teams in France and abroad, DAN.CIN.PROD. for the design and production of events and DAN.CIN.FEST which replaces the previous festival. “The idea was to bring together the various activities of Stela around a supporting structure, with a concentration on the societal dance film which is a cinematographic genre apart, explains Anna Alexandre, director of the structure. It is important to distinguish videodance, which corresponds to dance for the screen, such as music videos, from societal danced film, which uses dance for

The cinema will have to close two weeks at the end of July for the work to be carried out.

Nicolas Bros | Thursday, May 2, 2019

"Cosy and sober" are the key words of Paul-Marie Claret, director of the cinema Le Méliès Jean Jaurès, to characterize the vast renovation program that his establishment will experience from this summer. After investing between 2012 and 2018 in the digital switchover and other works less visible to the general public, the independent cinema of Saint-Etienne will experience a makeover. "We want to create a cocoon, so that the spectator, the moment he walks through the door of our establishment, finds himself in a "cinema bubble", that he leaves his worries at the entrance and embarks on a trip "in cinema"" explains Paul -Marie Claret. With the help of Clémence Boyer, architect, Philippine Lemaire, designer and Jordi Badiou, for the technical part, a complete renovation program will start at the beginning of July: complete recovery of the rooms (with in particular 450 new seats installed, including a twenty or so "love seats" or double seats without armrests), waiting halls, exits, toilets, compliance with the latest accessibility standards, replacement of the fire safety system...

Portrait | With a certain idea of ​​local cinema, Paul-Marie Claret runs Le Méliès with passion from the height of his 36 years. A mission he has been carrying out since 2011, not without difficulty, but with a dedication that inspires respect. Portrait of a whole man in everything he does.

Nicolas Bros | Wednesday, January 9, 2019

It is a passionate man who awaits us when we push open the door of the Demain les Vins cellar, located as if by happy chance just opposite the former premises of the Le Méliès cinema. Paul-Marie Claret knows everything that this location represents in the history of the Saint-Etienne film institution which he has been running since 2011. The Méliès has in a way become "his son", after having been that of his predecessor Alain Cramier. It is also in the bosom of the latter that Paul-Marie was able to do his scales, he who, as a child, already liked to squat in dark rooms. But before arriving at the management post of the Méliès Jean Jaurès and creating the Méliès Saint-François (successor to the mythical cinema Le France, located rue de la Valse), this fond of pelloches looked for himself for a few years before finding his way. Born in 1982, this "pure wool" resident of Saint-Etienne first tried his luck in law school, after his baccalaureate, a bit out of spite... "Initially, I wanted to become a journalist, specifies Paul-Marie Claret. I missed Sciences-Po by around 50 places. I then wanted to go to history school but I couldn't and so I took two years of law at Saint-É
