Despite the date in the camera data, these photographs were taken in June 2013. This is a community art-house cinema. I was told it is now 51 years old (so it first opened in the early 1960s). In the 1990s a second screen was added, and in c2009 a third. Capacities: Screen 1: 206; Screen 2: 200; Screen 3: 60.

The Cinema Lux was designed by Abbe Villan, and opened its doors on February 25, 1960 with Carmine Gallone in “Michel Strogoff” in CinemaScope. It was first managed by Gilbert Benois who managed the Lux for more than 30 years.

As of 2023, the Cinema Lux has a seating capacity of 466 seats and currently screens mainly art and independent features (mainly French stuff), as well as special classic and silent matinees. What’s rare about the Cinema Lux nowadays despite the Lux being mostly an art/independent cinema is that the Cinema Lux also rarely runs a couple of first-run American selections that normally and primarily pick up at both the Pathe Les Rives de l'Orne (or “Pathe Banks Of The Orne” in English) and the UGC Cine Cite Mondeville, but the Cinema Lux only picked it up for rare occasions.
