The Cinema de Paris building is still standing per current Google street views, but as it is situated in a residential neighborhood anyway, it has long since been renovated for residential use since its closure - but a clue of its former use as a movie theatre is still evident on the front of the building (whose second-floor balcony was converted from the theatre marquee that had been there for decades).
