I live in the same arrondissement as Paris Story, which is literally across the street from the Garnier Opera. I had a friend visit from Cambridge, Massachusetts who wanted to do all the touristy things in Paris. Paris Story was on his long list. Upon arrival, you descend a flight of stars, where there is a large waiting room/gift shop/lobby with a very cool interactive diorama map of the city with ll the points of interest lighting up. The gentleman who owns/runs it was front and center to guide the tour. The theatre is lush and the multi-media film includes a very nice history lesson, which should be of interest to anyone coming to France. The film is a bit dated, as far as how it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a modern day multi media experience. What is does have is passion and a true romantic love and respect for Paris, which is views as a mademoiselle, a fragile and beautiful woman. I am glad I got to see this, as it has a days gone by feel, which is sorely lacking over in the states (where I am from as well). I saw a few very brutal critiques of this attraction by some American tourists, who were maybe expecting something by Disney? lol. The film is in French, but there are headsets that translate it into many foreign languages, including English. It has been running for a couple of decades, i believe. It was a nice way to unwind during a snowstorm, between trips to the Opera and les grands magasins.
