I had the great pleasure of spending 10 days in Paris last month. My hotel; “Hotel des arts montmartre” was across the road 20 feet away from this beautiful theatre. Very small, but comfy cinema. It is the oldest theatre in Paris I was told. I became so frequent that the cashier tried to sell me a Frequent Patron Card. I wish I could be a frequent patron…maybe I will. The 2 new “night” pics I just added.

This is the famous theatre where Luis Bunuel’s 1930 surrealist film “L'Age d'Or” premiered and provoked a scandal. At the showing of October 3, there were demonstrations within the theatre by members of the Patriots' League and the Anti-Jewish League. Some shouted, “We’ll see if there are any Christians in France” and “Down with the Jews!” There were stink bombs, the screen was splashed with purple ink, seats were torn, paintings in the lobby were slashed. Authorities forced cuts to be made in the film. The film was banned on December 11 and all copies were confiscated by the police on December 12. The movie remained unseen for decades thereafter.
