Don't miss its movie concerts, with live music.
A sublime venue for concerts
If you have time for just one cultural performance in Lyon, have it be here. The spectacularly designed Auditorium (149 Rue Garibaldi) is best known as the home of the Orchestre National de Lyon, but also runs a range of year-round programming - mostly classical but also jazz, and most notably the ciné-concerts, with the musical soundtracks rendered by live orchestra or organ. It's an absolutely amazing experience, all the more so because of the sublime acoustics. Prices are also very reasonable, and include great discounts for under age 28.
