The Notre Dame cathedral caught fire on Monday, and though Parisian firefighters risked life and limb to save it from total destruction, the damage has been catastrophic – and heartbreaking.

Notre Dame is a world-renowned marvel of Gothic architecture, and has been photographed in movies for nearly as long as the medium has existed. As we come to terms with what has been lost, and plans are made to rebuild the structure, we take a look at 24 times the cathedral has been captured or rendered in glory in cinema.
