Located in the north of the city centre. The building was originally the Ville Japonaise (Japanese Town) a music hall and a brothel which opened in 1890. In 1917 it opened as the Paris Cine, with a seating capacity for 600. It was still operating as a single screen running first run films until 1962 when it was twinned. The Paris Cine operated on the ground floor and the Pix in the basement area (former music hall).

In the 1970’s it went over to screening pornographic movies and kung-fu movies. In recent years it was re-named Archipel-Paris Cine. It now presents Independent films, and occasional live theatre performances. The auditoriums seat 260 and 100.
