Le Grand Rex Cinema Tours

Le Grand Rex Cinema
Home to the biggest film screen in Paris, and one of Europe’s largest and grandest theaters, the Grand Rex one of the city’s top venues. In addition to new releases and other film screenings, the Grand Rex also hosts concerts, comedy shows, theatrical events, and glittering movie premieres that are attended by some of the world’s top celebrities.

The Basics
Built in 1932 for the French film producer Jacques Haïk, the aptly named Grand Rex is known both for its enormous proportions (its expansive Great Hall contains almost 3,000 seats spread across three levels) and for its art deco design. A registered Historic Monument since 1981, the landmark is one of Paris’ key cultural venues. It shows new releases across multiple screens, and also hosts film premieres, comedy shows, festivals, conferences, and other one-off, high-profile events.

Beyond booking tickets to a movie or special event, behind-the-scenes Rex Studios tours offer another way to explore. You can discover its typically off-limits projection room, see a recording studio and film set, and learn more about the Grand Rex’s fascinating history.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Grand Hall and Hall 5 are accessible to visitors with reduced mobility.
  • The venue doesn’t have lockers or large storage facilities, so try not to bring suitcases or other bulky bags with you.
  • Although the Grand Rex was occupied by the Nazis and used to show propaganda films during World War II, it reopened to the public just two months after Liberation.
  • Over 1 million visitors see films, events, and performances here every year.

How to Get There
Take Métro lines 8 and 9 to the nearby Bonne Nouvelle station. Alternatively, take the 20, 39, and 48 buses. You can also reach the centrally located Grand Rex by Vélib’, by car or taxi, or on foot.

When to Get There
The Grand Rex is open daily. Because its event calendar is always changing, it’s best to look up showtimes and performances before you travel and book tickets in advance. 

Famous Faces at the Grand Rex
The Grand Rex has hosted some of the most famous film stars and musicians in the world throughout its long history, including Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Gary Cooper, Britney Spears, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Grace Jones.
