Special effects at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie

From October 17, 2017 to August 19, 2018, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie hosts a great exhibition about special effects. A very exciting invitation to discover the magic behind the most impressive special effects in film history.

Be ready to live out a cinematographic and unique experience. The Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie simply transforms in a film set for an exhibition. This latter evolves around five interactive stages, and here is the trail:

  • Accreditation
    Here we go: grab your pass and start the visit!

    Effets Spéciaux , Crevez l'écran !

  • Film set
    Like in Hollywood, the film set looks like real life and is built like a city. The visitor can take part in various cinematographic processes, like auditioning, testing, creating living beings, creating special effects, etc.
    We discover all kinds of special effects: motion capture, chemistry and makeup sculpting, green or blue screens chroma keying, using a fan, 3D helmet… And let’s not forget paying a visit to special effects grandfather, M. Georges Méliès himself!
