Capital of chic
The French capital boasts some of the most instantly recognizable, iconic monuments in the world, with Notre Dame cathedral, the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower lined up in a great sweep along the River Seine. Yet for all its historic grandeur, elegant boulevards, world-class museums, chic boutiques and cosmopolitan buzz, Paris is also an intimate, intensely lived-in city, best discovered on foot. Each district has its own distinct style, bars, food market and village atmosphere.
Le Grand Rex
Le Grand Rex
The largest movie cinema in Paris
Le Grand Rex is the largest movie theater in Paris. It opened in 1932 showing the famous “Three Musketeers,” and was designed by architect Auguste Bluysen who focused on an Art Deco style. It is now host to big-name live concerts, star-studded movie premieres, as well as Disney movies.
Le Grand Rex is a beautiful sight to behold as far as architectural structures go. The Art Deco style that was so popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s, fills the roomy foyers, dance halls, and restaurant areas with stylish geometric forms and designs. The interior auditorium was decorated in a Moroccan style by Maurice Dufrene.
