Richelieu Gaumont

Located in the city centre on the Grand Boulevards. The Parisiana was opened in 1884 as a cabaret restaurant with 1,500 seats. By 1906 it was screening films and became a full-time cinema in 1910 with 1,600 seats. It was modernised in 1937. During the German occupation in World War II it was requisitioned by the Germans and became a soldiers cinema, like its near neighbour the Grand Rex. It was taken over by Gaumont and was modernised again in 1956 to the plans of architect M. Georges Peynet and renamed Richelieu Gaumont. In 1976 it was converted into 5 screens. It was closed in January 1987. By 2023 it was in retail use named Le Grande Recre.
