The Cinémathèque Française was founded in 1936 and currently holds one of the largest archives of films, documents and other objects in the world. The non-profit organization dates much older than the building it is housed in. Frank Gehry, an American architect, designed it in 1994, when it opened to house the American Center in Paris. It was taken over by the Cinémathèque Françaises shortly after and today it’s one of the foremost film institutions in France.
