Vaux-le-Vicomte fait son cinéma


A special exhibition goes behind the scenes to celebrate the many films made at Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte

***

No sooner back from Italy it was off to Vaux-le-Vicomte -- the château about an hour's drive outside of Paris that inspired Versailles -- to an invitation-only exclusive evening where lucky guests had the run of the castle into the night.

Above: thousands of candles light our approach; chamber group welcome; costumes from some of the many movies filmed here (Man In The Iron Mask, Marie-Antoinette, James Bond (Moonraker), Versailles, Three Musketeers....); a room set up and ready for filming; outstanding créatrice / costume designer Madeline Fontaine; spectacular Champagne apéro-dinatoire

Ends November 5
