Six scholars, member of the Astronomers’ Club, set off on an expedition to the moon. They travel in a bullet-shaped rocket fired into space by a giant canon. After arriving on the moon safe and sound, they meet its inhabitants, escape their king and return to earth in their rocket which, after falling into the ocean, is fished out by a sailor.
Applause, decorations, and a triumphant parade for the six heroes of the first outer-space adventure in the history of cinema.

In 1993, the Barcelona Archive unearthed a miraculous COLOR print of the most famous Georges Méliès‘ film in terrible condition. Then Lobster Films, Groupama Gan Foundation for Cinema and Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage conducted in 2010 a complete restoration.

The film is presented with an original soundtrack by the French band, AIR.

Everyone knows the image of the rocket in the eye of the moon. But where does it come from? Filmed in 1902, 6 years after the invention of cinema, by Georges Méliès (one of the heroes of Scorsese’ film Hugo Cabret), A Trip To The Moon was the first blockbuster in the history of cinema, but it has been forgotten ever since.
In 1993, the discovery of a print of the film IN COLOUR is the start of the most sophisticated and expensive restoration in the history of cinema: 12 years of work, the latest technologies involved, a multi-national plan for an impossible resurrection.

The Extraordinary Voyage is designed to go with Méliès’ short film A Trip To The Moon, in order to form an 79-minute screening experience.

Projection du film "Le voyage dans la Lune" de Georges Méliès dans sa version restaurée en 2011 et mis en musique par le groupe Air. Le film sera suivi du documentaire "Le voyage extraordinaire" racontant l'incroyable aventure de la restauration la plus complexe de l'histoire du cinéma du 1er film de science fiction.

Screening of "A Trip to the Moon" by Georges Méliès in its restored version in 2011 and set to music by Air. The film will be followed by the documentary "The Fantastic Journey" tells the incredible story of the most complex restoration of film history's first science fiction film.
