700 m from the hotel the Grand Rex is a witness to the exuberance of the ’30s.
A famous figure of the time, Jacques Haïk, wanted to dazzle Paris with a cinema inspired by New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Inaugurated in 1932, the main auditorium is a spectacle in itself: in its 2,000 m², 2,700 spectators can admire the starry ceiling 30 metres above them. On the walls, the relief decoration evokes the golden age of the Côte d’Azur. Ever since, the greatest filmmakers have chosen the biggest cinema in Europe to present their films in France. Maybe you will have the chance to see your favourite artists at a preview?
Classified as a historic monument and renovated in 2017, the Art Deco building has not lost any of its splendour and today hosts all sorts of shows. Check out the programme, or visit the theatres and backstage of this very different monument.
