The building itself is complex and full of posters and ads. There is always the famous red carpet, but make sure you have tickets for an interesting show. The building itself is not worth of visit.

AMAZING building, great structure! I attended not only the exhibition during normal days but also the extra events hosted there like the welcome cocktail and special speeches. Besides that, the view is 10/10

I was just there for the film festival last week. What an amazing experience. The boardwalk and beaches are beautiful. The area itself is great. I highly recommend it if you can get a ticket.

Impressive presence on the main street in Cannes near the front. You can imagine why it is the playground for the rich and famous. We just arrived after the film festival ended and lucky we did as the traffic was terrible
