Thematic screenings every Monday in July and August to discover a piece of Villers-sur-Mer history.

July 5: The tumultuous life of General Fontsallet de Villers
A whimsical documentary. Thanks to the Historical Dictionary written by the General, we discover the mysteries of Villers: from the Falaise to Mont Canisy via the Marais. Researchers and collectors as well as enthusiastic Villers are helping us to retrace the engaging and penetrating journey of this mysterious character, who died in 2010, who knew how to soak up the soul of Villers for nearly a century.

12 July:
- Honfleur or La Claire put in the Seine
Honfleur, seafaring port, city of art. Let us follow in the footsteps of Samuel de Champlain, Eugène Boudin, Charles Baudelaire, Érik Satie, Alphonse Allais! Magnificent images detail the charms of one of Normandy's treasures.
- Sails on the Seine
From Rouen to Honfleur, a splendid ballet of tall ships. The setting sun and the night accompany poetic photographs.

July 19 and August 9: Sabrina puts Villers blood on it
Villers, Blonville, Beaumont-en-Auge and Gonneville are the sites of a strange odyssey. How can a dedication to La Librairie du Marché disturb Sabrina Olsen, author of a detective novel? A Commissioner and his deputy, both retired, discover anomalous elements in the book written by Sabrina. While a frozen lover pursues the latter while singing.

26 July:
- Villers Formerly
History of the village of Villers-sur-mer from its origins to 1914, using archival documents, collections of 1900 postcards, books, drawings, paintings and old posters. Recorded testimonials bring authenticity and emotion.
- The stained glass windows of the Saint-Martin de Villers church
An exceptional collection of stained glass from the 19th century, due to the glass artist Duhamel-Marette d'Évreux. You do not suspect its richness.

August 2: Jules Verne in Villers
Interviewed by a journalist, Jules Verne (1828-1905) recounts his life from Nantes to Amiens, via Paris. Do you know that he came to Villers to adapt several of his novels with the playwright, Adolphe d'Ennery? (you can still see the Villa d'Ennery, located rue Paris d'Illins). The richness of the Hetzel collection and the modernity of the author of Voyages Extraordinaires (52 novels) have made him remain the most translated French-language writer in the world.

August 16: The Manors of the Pays d'Auge
The Norman wood panel is characteristic. Its construction has evolved over time. Let's visit some thirty charming manors, hidden in the bottom of the valleys, between Lisieux and Villers!

August 23: Villers during the war of 39-45
Produced in 1984 with the help of witnesses, now almost all of whom have disappeared, this evocation, illustrated by numerous documents lent by the villagers, brings us back to a painful past, steeped in history and, henceforth, already distant. Very moving !

August 30: Murder Passage des Muttes
A paleontological thriller filmed in Villers and produced with the help of many villers. A retired Commissioner and his deputy, accompanied by two children, investigate in Villers, Repentigny, Saint-Germain de Livet to answer three questions. What is the identity of the victim?
