Classic Movie Theater

Classic art deco move theater. The tour is worth your time for some behind-the-scenes exploration. The movie salons are nothing special, but the tour is good.

The tour is automated and they offer it in six languages. They send a group tour through about every five minutes to experience the tour in their language. The tour includes a lot of special effects. The tour shows some aspects of film making and editing. A video starring the the tour participants is available in the gift shop at... More

I watched Star Wars movie in grand Rex - salle grand large. I think it's the biggest screen ever I watched a movie. Excellent ambience and sound quality. The cost of the ticket is almost the same as other small cinemas. So if u love to watch a movie with good sound effects - grand Rex is the best option... More

I went to watch "Le lac des cygnes" ice skating performance. The theatre is beautifully decorated, and the stage is quite big. The seats are very comfortable and the visuals over the stage are good from most angles. Although i was seated down near the stage, i would advise to try to take the higher seats or the second stage... More

Just a plain fun visit behind the scenes of Le Grand Rex. You'll get fun and animated a surface scratch on the history of Le Grand Rex, cinema in general, and how movies are made. A shame the tour doesn't include a visit to the beautiful main movie theatre.

We saw a stellar performance by Sufjan Stevens at Le Grand Rex. The atmosphere is fantastic, the seats leave something to be desired, but we were there for a show not exceptional comfort. Beverages were accessible, we could see the stage from upper level seats, acoustics were fine and the star-studded, moving cloud ceiling was a welcome atmospheric touch that... More

I am a huge lover of cinema and art, so watching a movie is almost always on my to-do list. As soon as I found out that there is a huge cinema in Paris, I booked myself a ticket to the latest James Bond movie premiere for €11. Unlike some other people in the comments I was lucky to avoid... More

Takes about 40 min. You will be self guided through lights and audio voices through the backstage of Grand Rex. Very good to do with kids from 10 yrs old. Unfortunately the shop in the end of the tour was closed so we could not buy pictures of our 'performances'. There was not many people so it was like doing... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
