Ready. Set. Design. Exposition au Cercle Cité

Some film scenes are iconic, and the setting stays imprinted in the mind. The long hotel corridor in Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining", for example, or the shower in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". If cinema is "the supreme art of illusion" as people say, then the use of decors is a perfect illustration of this. If you want to take a look behind the scenes, you don't have to travel as far as Hollywood. Cinema is also made in Luxembourg. For example, a large industrial wasteland in Esch-Alzette became Venice, a street scene in Jerusalem was filmed in Remich. The exhibition "Ready. Set. Design. Le décor de cinéma au Luxembourg” invites visitors to discover decors and sets in Luxembourgish productions and co-productions made between 1980 and 2020 in the Ratskeller until 11 April. Free admission.


Our advice

Two lectures complement the exhibition, which was created in cooperation with the Centre national de l'audiovisuel (CNA) and the Luxembourg City Film Festival.
