Within walking distance from the famous Place de la Bastille – symbol of the French Revolution – are settled two MK2 movie theaters: one by Faubourg Saint Antoine, and the other by Beaumarchais.

It is one of the liveliest districts in the city and a must for night owls: the Bastille neighborhood! And in this district, you can enjoy two MK2 movie theaters: one by Faubourg Saint Antoine, the other by Beaumarchais. On the menu, enjoy this art house theater also playing indie movies, and movies for the general public released weekly, all in original version. And the MK2 Bastille auditoriums set Faubourg Saint Antoine side enjoy a laser screening since it was renovated in 2017.

And for four years already, the MK2 movie theaters renew their cultural season with events scattered throughout their auditoriums. By Beaumarchais, the theater houses conferences-debates called “Lundis Philos” with Charles Pépin. 1h, 1 oeuvre or even toddler-special sessions for kids aged 2 to 4, including short movies, soft light and lower sound level. As for the one by Faubourg Saint Antoine, enjoy the 1h, 1 chorégraphe conferences and karma cinema sessions. More about these sessions here.

After your movie session, you can take a walk along Faubourg Saint Antoine where you will see lots of picturesque passages like the Passage du Chantier or the one of the Cour de l’Etoile d’or. But you can also enjoy the Opéra de Bastille where you can visit the auditoriums throughout the day. If you are looking for unusual locations, meet at the Café des Chats, a café-restaurant set 400 meters from the MK2 Bastille movie theaters so you can have a drink surrounded by cats.
