Agreed that no cinema should be converted into a L.A. Fitness. Horrible. I would give my first born for any photos or media of any kind of the BBC Paris Theater with regards to Led Zeppelin and the concert they played there on 1 April 1971. To date, not a single photo exists of the band performing at the Paris Theater, not backstage, nor before or after the show. I find this hard to understand why this is the case.

Exterior features in the opening of “The Twenty Questions murder mystery” (1949) with a panning shot of Lower Regent Street showing people queuing for a recording of “20 Questions” (a popular radio programme of its day). Bomb damage visible in surrounding buildings – cinema has boarded up windows. Interior is studio set bearing no relation to the genuine article.
