He also loves Paris with a popcorn chaser

KENNETH TURAN'S homage to movie viewing in Paris ["Paris, With Popcorn," Jan. 30] brought back memories of my first trip to this cine-paradise. Within hours of arriving, I was being driven on the back of my host's moped (in a scene straight out of "Diva") as we rushed to catch the Paris debut of the much underrated "Jennifer 8." A few days later, I emerged from a screening of "If … " in a small rep cinema by the Sorbonne, filled with revolutionary vigor and ready for my return to England.

Perhaps one should think of Paris as "the City of Flickering Light"?
