What is a ciné-concert? This concept comes from the very beginning of the cinema, when all films were silent, and so accompanied by the live execution of music, generally especially composed or improvised for the movie. Long lost tradition, the concept of ciné-concert got a new birth in France from 1976, making people rediscover the magic and the depth of silent films.
