Renaissance du Luxor
After two and a half years of work, the Luxor facelift is upon us. The oldest cinema in Paris possesses an Egyptian art-deco decor and regained its original splendor under the leadership of architect Philippe PUMAIN.
Do you know what is the oldest cinema hall in Paris? The Rex? Pagoda? Lost! The Luxor and its incredible 20 years of decorum!
Now comes a new mythical place with 3 levels: The Youssef Chahine room (great Egyptian director) which includes 334 seats, a second room with 136 seats for both cinema and entertainment, and a small room with 71 chairs and don’t forget about the mythical bar of Luxor.
The venue will be dedicated to the cinema of course, but also to dance, music and theater.
On the sidelines of the opening of the Luxor, the mayor of the 10th arrondissement hosts an exhibition entitled “THE LUXOR THE PALACE CINEMA” and organized by the association Friends of Luxor from March 25 to May 25 2013 .
The exhibition presents a historical and thematic design that reveals the history of the Luxor. It is a place for professional photographers and the work of young designers who are passionate about the rebirth of this building. This neighborhood theater was, in 1921, one of the first Parisian rooms to have been designed to be a cinema.
