Styles: Art Deco
Located at the beginning of Avenue Mac-Mahon next to the Arc de Triumphe. Opened in September 1938 on the site of a former theatre, this small movie theatre is built in the basement of a building and is one of the last single screens of Paris, like a miracle it is still a movie theatre with an interior design unchanged since the beginning. The front side has been renovated but with a good taste. A small lobby leads you to a large staircase and you get into the auditorium on the left side of the screen.
The Mac-Mahon was an art movie theatre since the beginning and for a long time was owned by the same person. Now it is open during the weekends and can be hired for various kinds of events (such as birthday parties). A recent DVD of the French movie “Les Tontons Flinguers” uses a scene of the auditorium in a bonus to introduce a newsreel of 1963. It was closed for a while in 2022 to allow for a refresh, which included widening the screen. It reopened in early-October 2022.
