Le Grand Rex (The Grand Rex), one of the largest cinemas in Europe and a shrine to Parisian cinema, invites you to discover its secrets, at the heart of its history. Since its inauguration in 1932, its has been ever-increasingly popular. A work of art and a popular monument, it has a magical link between fantasy and real life. An atmospheric theatre in American parlance, it features a starred “sky” overhead and interior fountains. It is a landmark of Art Deco architecture. It features the largest screen in Europe, called Grand Large. The cinema was designed by Auguste Bluysen, a French architect. John Eberson, a Romanian-American, served as a consulting architect. Eberson was known for his atmospheric cinemas in North America, and for more than three hundred in his career. Construction began in 1931, and the cinema opened its doors the following year on the evening of December the 8th.
Le Grand Rex has made it through the darkest moments in history unscathed. Its main auditorium which seats 2,650 people, sports a unique decor with a starry dome. In addition to cinema screenings, the venue also presents concerts, comedians, events and conventions.
The cinema is host to the Jules Verne Adventure Film Festival each April, a six-day event that attracts more than 48,000 attendees and is the most important adventure and discovery film festival in the world.
