La Geode - the movie theater of the future
La Geode is found in the Cite de Sciences and it's so far the most futuristic movie theater that I've ever been. It's 180° screen (its round from the outside) gives you all the thrills for a visually stimulating film plus the super hi-tech sound system makes your ordinary film extra-ordinary.
Highly recommended for kinds. Am sure they'll love it.

Driving home with his wife one day, a man was stopped by the police.
The cop said, "Sir, you were going 60 mph in a 50 mph zone."
"No I wasn't," the man said.
His wife leans over and says, "Yes you were, honey."
"Why don't you shut the hell up?" he told her.
The cop continues, "You also didn't have your seatbelt on, sir."
"Yes I did," the man said.
"No, honey, no you didn't," his wife chimed in.
"Didn't I just tell you to shut up?" the man shouted.
The cop finally leans into the window and says, "Ma'am, is this your husband?"
"He sure is," she replied.
"Is he always this mean and rude with you?" the cop asked.
The woman smiled at him and said, "No, officer, only when he's drunk."
In Paris you must sit back and...
In Paris you must sit back and people watch. Stop at a cafe and just watch the people go by. Paris has so much to do you can quickly tire yourself out. Enjoy the foods and the wines and relax a little. You can 'stop and smell the roses' at one of many gardens around the city. Here is a picture of me doing just that at the garden behind Notre Dame.
Here are my advices for those who don't want to be immediately identified as tourists : Parisian people in Paris don't wear big white shoes, nor shorts or bermudas. They also don't wear socks with sandals. Cap is basically considered as an accessory for young people. Generally we don't speak loudly.
PS : Backpack and suitcases are well accepted in the subway but less during the peak hours.
Don't forget the..
Good comfortable shoes. The only way to really get to see all of Paris is to walk up and down the streets. Not to mention the walking in the museums. Sneakers will definitely set you apart from many other world travelers. A pair of comfortable walking shoes are a better choice. You can't go to Paris without lots of film or digital memory for your camera. Don't forget that the power is different so you'll need to have a converter so you don't blow out your batteries while recharging them. A French phrase book. You don't have to speak perfect French to communicate in Paris as many people there speak fluent English. That said, you should still consider learning a few phrases.. hello, please, thank you, etc. If you try, people will be more apt to help!
