Giant cinema located on the Grands Boulevards, in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, the Grand Rex can accommodate more than 2,700 people in its largest room. Built in the early 1930s by Olympia owner Jacques Haik, it is designed as a model of Radio City Music Hall in New York.
Its large room is then decorated in a Mediterranean-antique style, presenting an Art Deco atmosphere of the villas of the Riviera. The building is known for its many entertainments, like the fairy water proposed before each Christmas Disney. Over the years, seven rooms complete the ensemble, as well as the Rex Club.
Listed as a Historical Monument, the Grand Rex is today known for hosting a large number of Parisian previews, as well as major special events around music or cinema. It also houses the Grand Large, one of the largest screens in France that occupies the entire width of the room.
