Address Grand Rex 1 Boulevard Poissonnière, 75002 Paris, France

Inaugurated in 1932, the Grand Rex still amazes today both outside and inside.

Intended by the former owner of L’Olympia, Jacques Haïk, the Grand Rex is a totally extravagant movie theater.

Built as a scale model of New York’s Radio City Music Hall, the theater has everything to please. Originally, 5,000 spectators were supposed to be able to attend a projection in the same room with a ceiling reaching more than 30 m, representing a luminous starry vault. Eventually, the number of seats was reduced to an equally gargantuan 3,300.

Today, the venue has 7 halls with 2,702, 500, 262, 210, 155, 125 and 100 seats.

Regularly targeted as a privileged place for previews, its recognizable facade and the building were listed as historical monuments in 1981.
