Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opening on a small street next to the Grand Rex in 1960, the Bikini was a small cinema running Westerns and B movies. A neon sign at the corner of the street and the Grand Boulevard led to the small entrance of the theatre which was a former restaurant.

In 1970 after a refurbishing the Bikini with a new sign and a brighter advertisement at the corner of the street became a first run theatre. The auditorium had tiled walls, a new projection booth and a new name, the Beverley.

But around 1972 the location on a quiet street became an opportunity to convert it to adult movies as did a lot of movie theatres in the neighbourhood.

After a refurbishing in 2003, the Beverley is still surviving as the last adult movie theatre of Paris.
