With friends, colleagues or family, there is something for everyone...

Eden Cinema

Eden Cinema was inaugurated in 1915, but it was in the 1920s that the Eden really established itself in the Cosnoise sociability : it then comprised a big cinema hall, a ballroom and a café. However, it was not until 1935 and the work of the local architect Roger Charton that it came to look the way it does today, which is so typical ! Yes, we are talking about its famous Art Deco facade ! The latter is rounded in shape and reminds us of a film reel. Also notice that the name of the cinema is inlaid with enamels, the enamels of Briare, a town not far from us and famous for its canal bridge !

The cinema has 2 rooms and offers 3D screenings. Every year, in November, the cinema hosts the "Festival du Cinéma Les Avant-Premieres", where films are screened there in preview, before their national release.
