The Cinema Opera was built in 1922, opening on 27th January 1923 with the film “les Hommes nouveaux” and was designed by architect Emile Thion & Marcel Rousseau in ann Art Nouveasu style. It was a single screen cinema with seating for 1,500 in orchestra & balcony levels. From 1925 and into the 1930’s it was operated by Paramount.

In 1981 it was subdivided into six screens seating a total of 1,366, and the entrance has been reversed to the rear of the building at 3 rue Theodor Dubois, using the former stage as a foyer.
