Today I visited the exhibition Cinema Paradiso at the Grand Palais and took these shots to give you an idea of what’s going on there.

There is an imitation diner with nachos and cheeseburgers (and champagne!?). Plus lots of Coke and even more Coke signage. (Count 10€ for a cheeseburger and 20€ for a decent meal–I didn’t price the champagne.)
