Located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, the Chaillot Theater is one of the six national theaters of the capital. Built in 1937 by the famous Niermans brothers, it was for years the symbol of popular theater, including Jean Vilar or Antoine Vitez.
Its interior was completely renovated in the early 1970s, and until 2006 housed a theater school. Today, the site consists of three rooms for smaller shows.
The national theater of Chaillot also houses an important collection of sculptures, paintings and other pastels signed by great French artists such as Maurice Denis, Edouard Vuillard or Aristide Maillol.
