For European Heritage Days held on Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021, Paris Le Grand Rex invites you to go behind the scenes. Stage wings, fun facts, you will know everything about this legendary movie theater in Paris set on the Grands Boulevards.

More than a simple movie theater, Le Grand Rex is an emblematic place for the 7th art in Europe. Built in 1932, it is now listed “historic monument” especially thanks to its Grande Salle – the biggest in Europe – that can wleocme up to 2750 viewers! Come and discover its secrets on European Heritage Days 2021!

On the menu on Saturday September 18 (from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and Sunday 19, 2021 (from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.)free guided tours of the main room and its wings, as well as fun facts on the construction of the room in the 1930's, as well as on the incredible shows that took place there. Do not forget to sign up beforehand.

Then, for the most curious ones, head to Rex Studio for an audio-guided tour from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.! This tour takes you to the backstage of a movie studio. You will discover how a movie is made, from the set to the last clap (where a surprise expects you!), walking by the screening booth or the special effects room. Yet, please note this experience remains charged even for European Heritage Days, for €5 instead of €11. Sign up here!
