Located near the Cinelandia district of central Rio. The Cine Parisiense was one of the earliest cinemas to be built in the city, and it opened soon after 30th June 1907, which is the date the city electricty supply was begun. The tall facade is concaved and has been modernised over the years.

After closing as a cinema, it became the Teatro Nacional de Comedia, and today operates as a live theatre, re-named Teatro Glauce Rocha, after the actress.
