7 Parnassiens

Viewing: Photo | Street View

In the 1970’s, plans for a cinema with five screens, a video arcade, a bar and a restaurant eventually opened as a seven screen multiplex in 1978.

It is located in a small mall between the Boulevard Montparnasse and another street. It was very unusual in Paris during that time to queue inside a theatre when weather is bad, but at this theatre there is room enough to hold the capacity of the multiplex. The design was awful and was not a very comfortable place, but it premiered first run art movies in their original version in the Montparnasse district.

In 1990, a major refurbishing with wide screens, a cosy design with a big bar and lobby and wooden floors, completely changed the atmosphere. The 7 Parnassiens is owned by one of the last independent chains of Paris. Seating is provided for 244 in Screen 1, 265 in Screen 2, 119 in Screen 3, 69 in Screen 4, 54 in Screens 5 & 6 and 30 in Screen 7.
