This is a five-cinema complex in the centre of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Subscriptions are available and the UGC pass is also valid here. Reduced admission for everyone on Wednesdays and Mondays, all day.

In around 1930, when talking films began to emerge, two cinemas opened in Saint-Germain-en-Laye:

"Le Majestic" which, despite its dilapidated state and lack of comfort, continued to screen films for twenty years or so after the Liberation. Later, it was totally transformed into the "C²L" cinema (opened in 1968, today it is the oldest existing cinema in Saint-Germain-en-Laye).

"Le Royal" which was totally renovated after the Liberation and continued to operate under the same name until 1978. The cinema was then purchased by the town council who renamed it "Salle Jacques Tati" after the death of Jacques Tati, paying tribute to one of the greatest names in French cinema who, having lived in Saint-Germain for several years, returned here to rest.

The company which owned the C²L brand, Jousseaume, was taken over by Jean-Charles Edeline in 1983 and the current cinema was built at 25 Rue du Vieux Marché in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

The family's cinematic tradition dates back to 1934, when they built "Le Central" cinema in Puteaux. It was one of the first concrete constructions to be built at the time.

Jean-Charles Edeline then became an important cinematic stakeholder, his roles including:

- Founding CEO of the Union Générale Cinématographique (UGC),

- Chairman of the Syndicat Français des Théâtres Cinématographiques,

- Chairman of the Société Française de Production (SFP).

Today, his granddaughter, Marie-Laure Couderc, is the CEO of Jousseaume.

C²L continued to develop and, in 2004, Marie-Laure Couderc undertook major renovation work within the establishment. New digital technologies emerged in 2009.
