The first time we went here was when Sin City (2005) was released, we bought out tickets, we we’re shown the general direction, and headed off underground into the rotunda. Found our screen, as there was no one about, we thought it was then okay to enter, we sat down, in the dark, then fixed our eyes onto the screen, thinking that the Ads were on. Err…NO. We had in fact walked into Sin City and its last twenty minutes shakes head in disbelieve, it must be a French thing. I mean, no one said, “wait here”.

We stayed until the end of the next run, hid our heads while the lights came on, and what was odd is just where you go to EXIT. It seems it is what looks like a “fire exit”, going up the long, wide steps to open the door with the “push bar to open door" handle which then brings you out into a side street! Very French we thought.

Been twice since: Batman Begins and Superman Returns…if you get the chance to go, then go, it’s a great place to see a film and visit…

Several moviegoing memories of this complex over the years…dating back to the two screen Concorde – Marignan days. Remember seeing a real Eurotrash potboiler starring Orson Welles The Battle of the Neretva here, as well The Elephant Man, Down & Out in Beverly Hills, True Confessions here in first run and more recently Die Another Day shortly after first run in one of the smaller screens. The complex could really stand an update. The Champs deserves 4 stadium seating screens instead of 6 irregular ones
