Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

Located in Versailles, in the outer southwest of Paris. This theatre has the name of a popular character of the French Theatre: Cyrano de Bergerac. Built around the 1920’s, the huge facade is designed with a tile picture of Cyrano. There was a stage which hosted variety shows.

It is a first run cinema, the biggest in Versailles, not so far from the famous palace. It has hosted premieres and The Beatles played a concert in 1964 in front of 2,000 patrons.

The Cyrano was one of the first big capacity cinemas of the suburbs to be multiplexed. Screen 1 with 500 seats is located in the upper part of the building and the original ceiling remains.

A new entrance was added on one side of the theatre and the old facade was restored around 1975. This eight screen cinema is very comfortable and has a luxurious design. In 2016 it was taken over by UGC.
