Le Grand Rex

This enormous cinema wasn't named Le 'Grand' Rex for nothing and, more than 60 years after launch, it is still Paris's biggest picture house. Its plush baroque-style interior and art deco facade make it a must for cinema enthusiasts who appreciate a spot of old-school grandeur.

Sitting on the high-level red velvet seats is such a worthwhile experience, it barely matters whether or not you can understand the dialogue though, if you're lucky, you'll be able to catch an Anglophone film with French subtitles (look out for the 'VO' symbol, standing for Version Original). Don't come expecting a bill of vintage fare to match the fairytale looks; this is a mainstream multiplex, effectively, with six smaller screens, all leaning towards blockbusters. Look out for festivals, seasons and after-dark events.
