Address 10 Rue Tholozé 75018 Paris, France

It is at 10 rue Tholozé in Paris that the Studio 28 cinema is located, inaugurated in 1928.

Classified as Art et Essai, this cinema was inaugurated on February 10, 1928, hence its name of Studio 28 cinema.

Jean-Placide Mauclaire decided to create it in order to dedicate it to cinematographic research.

It was built on the site of a former cabaret of chansonniers and could accommodate up to 400 spectators. It screened the first Chinese film in France, as well as the feature films of Abel Gance. It welcomed many artists such as Jean Cocteau or Luis Bunuel.

It was the projection of the latter’s film, The Golden Age, that triggered a fight. The owner had to leave the theater. In 1932, the theater was reopened and began showing American films such as those of the Marx Brothers and Frank Capra.

Closed for security reasons, the Studio 28 cinema reopened thanks to the Roulleau brothers in 1950. Gance and Cocteau were the patrons and the theater became once again a cultural Mecca.

Today, it has a capacity of 170 seats and is equipped with a 10 m screen. It is the first public theater in Paris to be equipped with a 4K projector.
