Are you looking for the ideal cinema to see a film in the best conditions? Go to the Max Linder Panorama cinema. You will find one of the last single-screen theaters in Paris. The entrance doesn’t look like much and yet it hides one of the most beautiful theaters – some like me will even say the most beautiful one 🙂
With a capacity of nearly 600 spectators, it has one of the largest digital screens in Paris – a curved screen allowing a real immersion to which is added a sound system with the best technologies. It’s simple: this is the room that most directors and producers choose to test the image and sound of their film before the national release.
If you go there, the well-known tip of the regulars is to sit in the first rows of the first balcony. The theater is indeed one of the three Parisian theaters to have kept its two balcony levels.
One last detail about the room’s appearance: the choice to cover the room entirely with black paint and velvet to push the cinematic immersion to its peak. Enjoy!
Finally, because we also like the place because of its history, you should know that this theater was the property of French actor Max Linder. Initiator of burlesque in cinema, he inspired Charlie Chaplin who saw him as a master. You can discover an extract of one of his films in the lobby of the cinema while waiting in line to buy your popcorn!
