A movie that enjoys a rather discreet façade on Grands Boulevards, and yet it has a story deeply rooted in its plinths and panelings. Formerly known as the Kosmorama, the place is taken over in 1914 by burlesque actor Max Linder who inaugurates it on March 21, 1919. The venue was then one of the most modern cinemas in Europe. Right before the war, the cinema is then taken over by Pathé in 1932 and renovated in 1957. It’s now the last cinema enjoying a panoramic mono-screen. It measures 107sqm.
A huge room, including 557 velvet chairs, wallpapered walls and even Venetian style stucco balconies inspired by the 30’s….
