In the 1992 Chabrol film, “Betty,” heroine Marie Trintignant walks by this fabled theatre.

Last night time I was in Paris I stayed right around the corner from the famous Mac Mahon. Isn’t this the theatre where the Godards and the Truffauts and the Rohmers received their cinema educations?

I remember catching David Lynch’s “Wild at Heart” here in ‘01 and this guy about three-quarters through the movie gets up from his seat, walks in front of the screen and gives the screen “the bird.” I don’t think he liked the film too much.

I think I was only there once, in August of 1970 to see Samuel Fuller’s UNDERWORLD, U.S.A. That kind of auteurist favorite defined the programming of the Mac Mahon. I’m glad it’s still around!

A fabulous place to catch a Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers or Buster Keaton classic literally a few steps from the Champs Elysees…Paris used to be full of cinemas like this…There are still a few on the Left Bank but this has always been a Right Bank mainstay! Worth supporting if you’re ever visiting Paris
