MUBI Podcast: Season 2, Episode 1 - The Cinémathèque Française Launches Two Revolutions

MUBI Podcast returns with a new season uncovering history-making experiences that were only possible in movie theaters.
In 1940s France, a little 50-seat cinema opened that would launch one revolution on international movie screens...and arguably a second one in the streets of Paris. Host Rico Gagliano delves into the wild history of the Cinémathèque Française and its legendary founder, Henri Langlois.
Featuring interviews with directors Barbet Schroeder (Barfly, Reversal of Fortune) and Luc Moullet (Brigitte et Brigitte), plus New Yorker writer Louis Menand, Amy Nicholson of the podcast "Unspooled," and many more.
The second season of the MUBI Podcast, titled “Only in Theaters,” tells surprising stories of individual cinemas that had huge impacts on film history, and in some cases, history in general.
