Tuesday, September 4th: The Cataphiles – Underground Paris

The Cataphiles
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
$12 in advance

Though it’s known as the “City of Light,” there are 170 miles of absolute darkness that exist under Paris – a network of limestone quarries dotted with WWII bunkers, ossuaries, unofficial art galleries, and other assorted surprises colloquially known as “The Catacombs.” It is home to a subculture of people of all ages, interests, and nationalities who make a hobby of exploring and utilizing these and other hidden spaces throughout Paris – the “Cataphiles.”

Moses Gates will be covering the history, culture, and structures of this underground world in a slideshow presentation, as well as explaining how you, too, can become a Cataphile.
