“…Every week, after coming out of school, we would go to the Cineac Cinema (found in the former Montparnasse train station). Here, we would watch strange and popular films and serials such as Tom Mix in The Miracle Rider, Mysterious Doctor Satan, Zorro Fighting Legion or Nyoka and the Tiger Men. The projections of these films were often interrupted by the public address system of the train station, announcing the arrival or departures of trains. Travellers entered or exited the cinema theatre as if they were in a waiting lobby. If there was ever such a thing as Dadaist cinema session, then the screenings at the Cineac were it!”
