Here is a 2008 photo of Cinema Le Darcy. The name on the building reads Darcy Palace. I’m wondering if that is another name for this cinema.

The original Darcy Palace opened around the time of World War I. During WW II it served as a Soldatenkino for the German forces. The present cinema complex retains the original street facade of the original Darcy Palace. I have, somewhere but just now mislaid, more details of the history, which I will post if they turn up.

Took a while but I found my information eventually, hiding in plain sight.

The Darcy Palace first opened on 6 March 1914, with “Mark Anthony and Cleopatra”, it was designed by the architect Bouchard and it had about 1,100 seats, but they claimed 1,500. During World War II it was a “Soldatenkino”. Additional screens were added from 1976, with the sixth screen added in 1995.
