The last independent chain running major movie theatres on the left bank of Paris had to create new screens in 1972 at the beginning of the multiplex era.
It was decided to open two new screens on the ground floor of a new building in front of the newly built Montparnasse tower (which replaced the old railway station).
The architecture was very 1970’s, and one had stadium seating, the other one, a balcony.
The projection booths were apart and Cinemeccanica rock and roll equipment (entirely automatic) was installed (one of the first in Paris).
Opening in 1972 as a first run theatre, the first years were successful but the location was in the shadow of the tower where nobody walked.
The Bienvenue Montparnasse is now considered old fashioned but is still operating, now with a program policy of art movies.
