Built as an art house cinema in the 1930’s and with an Art Deco facade, this cinema was owned during the 1960’s by the manager of the live Theatre Gramont, and had the same policy of two movies for each performance for a long time: subtitled original versions of many old American movies.
The screen was very small because the projection booth was at the level of the ceiling and in a corner of the deep balcony and could not afford a bigger size especially with CinemaScope.
In the 1980’s, a new management tried to give new life to the cinema introducing live music with concerts and a stage was built, but soon it returned to movies with five different movies every day.
A new projection booth was built in the middle of the balcony in order to use a wide screen, but after one year, the Studio Bertrand closed. Around 1987, it became a church for a while then closed.
The theatre has been dark for more than 25 years.
