Lumière Castle, Lyon 8th district Overall view
  • working since
  • 2013

The "Lumière" castle, once home to Antoine Lumière, was built in 1901 close to the workshopes of the Lumière factory where the Lumière Brothers, back in 1895, made the first film of the cinema's history - Lumière Mills Exit.
The castle now houses the Lumière's Institute, a living museum of cinema.

To uplight the lion heads made of enamel and positioned down the roof, LEC provided the City of Lyon with 24 projectors from the 4020-Luminy 2 range.
