Thursday night the Cannes Film Festival began its Cinéma de la Plage series of late night screenings on the beach.  The first movie to be shown was Dr. No, a 1962 James Bond film starring Sean Connery and directed by Terrence Young.  The beach side viewing drew large crowds of locals, tourists and even industry members.
