Attraction details
Owner description: Unique in franceThe circular cinema plunges you into the heart of the Battle of Normandy. Projected in high definition on 9 screens, the unpublished archive footages retrace the 100 days of a raging battle.
Reviewed 2 June 2018

The cinema is located up on the cliff. It is relatively easy to make the short uphill walk from the town to get to it. Parking was available at a flat rate in an adjacent campground and was a bit expensive for the time one spends there.
The film was okay. I wasn't sure that there was a great deal of benefit from the 360 degrees of screen. It conveyed a sense of chaos for sure. It wasn`t particularly crowded the day we were there. Possibly being crammed in with others would have mimicked the sense of what the soldiers went through and added considerably to the emotional impact.
It would be a good activity on a rainy day.

Nice walk up the hill from Arromanches-les-Bains to the 360 gives you a great view and sense of the scale of what happened on Gold Beach. The film the gives the quick history of d-day but in a spectacular film.

It's best to start here before going down to Arromanches itself. The show is quite loud so not suitable for sensitive young children but otherwise very useful to help them understand what D Day was about.

The 20minute film is a fantastic introduction into the D-day landings and 1944-45. Very moving.
It would be quite hard hitting and loud for very young children but hugely valuable experience for all.

We have been here twice. There is a large car park that only costs a couple of euros in total. It is well signed so you can’t miss it. It is just outside of town on the nearby hill (5min walk into then). There are free toilets and a viewing platform of the surrounding mulberry harbours.
The 360 venue is a minute walk from the car park and it is clean and modern. It is reasonably priced (5.50euros per person). Showings are in the hour and at half past. They last 18 minutes and you stand in the middle of the theatre with screens all round you. The film is moving and interesting. It is definitely worth seeing if you are in the area.
