The Gaumont Palace was featured in all but the last of Francois Truffaut’s famous “Antoine Doinel” series of features, beginning with “The 400 Blows” and ending with “Bed and Board”, in which the film playing there is “Cheyenne Autumn”. (Available as a group from Netflix) in fact, young Doinel’s first apartment is located in the front if the building just across the street to the left. Alas, none of the TV interviews with the director pointed this out or inquired about the fact. Did he consider making greater use of the theatre itself?

I remember this cinema well and I also remember it being demolished. Tragic loss.

My son found a original movie tix from this theater for King Kong in 1933. I was wondering if it is worth anything? If so does anyone know where I could sell it?

I’ve written about this cinema on my blog(http://parisisinvisible.blogspot.com/2008/10/prince-and-pauper.html), comparing the previous pictures found here with current pictures I took of what is there today. I wasn’t sure who to credit for the archive pictures so apologies to anybody who thinks they should have been credited.
