A fun tour of the old huge movie theater, behind the screen. See how it all works and learn a little about the movies French-style. Also a very good place to see a film. An historic theater.

The movie theater is supposed to be the largest in Europe. I would not be surprised; the main salon is huge! The décor is beautiful, and I think it looks a lot like the Fox Theater in Atlanta. The sound system is excellent, and the...More

Excellent tour. I went on a quiet Sunday morning in the beginning of June. It's all automated and you are led through a series of areas as if you are in a studio and they are filming a film and you are part of the...More

By accident, I paid for tickets to the French version of the movie, and we only speak English. The staff were very kind and helpful! Plus, well, it's just a fabulous theatre!!

We really wanted to see the actual theater - but that's not what tour is. The tour is cute, behind the scenes - but NOT the theater part.

Beware!! If the staff offer to show you to your very easily findable seats they then proceed to beg you for a tip for doing so. Awful, cringey, desperate. Really put a dark mark on our experience.

Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and

If you look at somewhere like Ticketmaster for their one off concerts and short runs they normally come with a plan that gives rows and numbers so you can get better idea of where you would be sitting.
