In the 1930’s, Pathe built a very nice Art Deco building in order to give a home to foreign stars staying in Paris; the apartments are like ateliers on two levels. In the space of the ground floor and underground they created a very modern movie theatre with a very clever way to use the piece of land which is at a corner of two streets. It was considered at that time an example of modernity by architecture reviews. There was a bar and a balcony and the patrons were people from the 16th district of Paris.
In the 1970’s, a renovation converted the space of the balcony into a bank for more rentability. A narrow lobby led to a 1970’s style auditorium.
In 1986 like the others single screens of the district(Mayfair, Passy, Broadway) the Victor Hugo Pathe was closed indefinitively.
The beautiful Art Deco building remains, the ground floor of the former cinema space is in use as the Picard surgery.
