The new exhibition of the Departmental Archives allows to discover the history of cinema in Corrèze, from the first travelling projections in 1897 to the current multiplexes. Whether you are a movie buff or not, you will also be pleased to (re)discover the films shot in the department, during a guided tour, as well as an important collection of Pathé cameras and projectors from the inventor and industrial Tullist Pierre-Victor Continsouza.
