July 7, 2016: Projection of the movie "Les vacances de Mr Hulot" (1953) (Academy Awards, USA 1956; Oscar Best Writing, Story and Screenplay) 
The principal setting for the film is Hôtel de la Plage at Saint-Marc-sur-Mer (Saint-Nazaire), not far from La Baule

Director: Jacques Tati

Writers:

 Henri Marquet (dialogue), Henri Marquet (screenplay)

Synopsis (from Wikipedia): Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot follows the generally harmless misadventures of a lovable, gauche Frenchman, Monsieur Hulot (played by Tati himself), as he joins the "newly emerging holiday-taking classes" for a summer vacation at a modest seaside resort. The film affectionately lampoons several hidebound elements of French political and economic classes, from chubby capitalists and self-important Marxist intellectuals to petty proprietors and drab dilettantes, most of whom find it nearly impossible to free themselves, even temporarily, from their rigid social roles in order to relax and enjoy life. The film also gently mocks the confidence of postwar    western society in the optimistic belief in capitalist production, and the value of complex technology over simple pleasures, themes that would resurface in his later films.
