La Pagode, Paris

3.8
#105 of 152 in Fun & Games in Paris
For a truly unique movie-going experience, check out La Pagode in Paris where you can enjoy films while housed in a beautifully designed pagoda. After becoming a cinema in 1931, this venue has gained a name for presenting cutting-edge French films. Today, this tradition continues with the addition of a monthly Japanese film screening and discussion group.

While the films are interesting, the cinema itself is worth going for. You can expect to see a quaint yet charming garden just outside, where you can wait for the showing to begin. If you’re feeling more inquisitive, look closely for the small details in the architecture of this pagoda. Subtle colors, painted flowers alongside intricately carved wood, sinuous shapes, and natural imagery create a breathtaking overall scene while not being overpowering.

  • Therefore, the cinema La Pagode-now, alas, closed-it is Yes in rue de Babylone, but it is definitely not the Chinese temple that you see in the picture! The latter is not a cinema and is located in rue de Courcelles (metro station of the same name), near the Parc Monceau (which I highly recommend visiting), arrondissement 8 and 17. I hope I was helpful.

  • This was a wonderful place but was closed several years ago and is unlikely ever to reopen.
  • A magical place in Paris! To see the latest french film or just enjoy the beautiful terrace ...
  • One of my favorite places to see films or attend organized conferences. This independant movie theater with its unique decor and a small garden outside provides a nice venu for adding some 'culture' to life.
  • The best movie theatre I ever visited and one of my favourite movie theatre
  • Best cinema ever.
