There were only 4 of this seated for this show. It was included as part of the Paris Pass and since it was right next to the Opera House, we decided to take advantage of the offer and go in. Luckily we did not have to pay extra to go in. The film was not shot in HD, so the... More

We got the tickets to Paris Story included with our Paris Pass. As a bonus item, it was fine. We really liked the miniature relief map of Paris in the lobby. The movie was interesting and it would make sense to do this activity early in your visit to add some depth to the things you see in Paris. They... More

It's only alright. Can be skipped. It's in a form of poetry - poet speaking to a lady(Paris) about its architecture amd fashion.

Have been to other cities with similar themed movies about their history....this one was one of the more disappointing. It was 11€ which us way too much, should only be 5 max because of the quality. A school group visited just before us but during our showing it was an audience if two. If you have time, want to get... More

I expected much more information regarding the actual history of Paris. During the entire movie I felt anxious because I felt like it was wasting precious time. I chose to do this because I thought it would give my 12 and 214 year old some background on Paris so that they would enjoy our further sightseeing that much more. This... More

I found the film about the history of Paris interesting, although there were a few gaps - evidently, WWII never happened in Paris. The theatre was nearly empty when we were there, which was a good thing, given that we had to scramble to try a dozen headsets before we found two that worked. The "interactive" part is a model...

We stopped by this attraction as a break from the sightseeing. The movie was good but got bogged down at times. At one point, I glanced over at my sons were were sound asleep. A good idea but they need to amp up the excitement factor. On the plus side, my sons were very refreshed after their nap and I... More

This one hour documentary is one of the attractions included in the Paris Pass. We viewed this documentary before our guided tour of the Opera Garnier (which is across the road). The theatre was about three quarters full. A good overview of Paris and its history without being too taxing. A good option on a hot day or for those... More

The first day of my visit of Paris I fell on this place by chance. What a beautiful discovery! The movie is not too long and just perfect to have a good vision of all the monuments to be visited on Paris. The model in the hall is very well made too. The place is easily accessible (just behind the... More
