In the early-1970’s a huge condominium called Le Grand Pavois was built next to the limit between the 15th district of Paris and the southern suburbs.

The development included many shops and one screen first run movie theatre seating 300 which opened as the Grand Pavois in 1971. Run by an independent theatre chain, this theatre was duplexed a few years after the opening with the single auditorium divided into two screens. The independent operator of the theatre during the 1970’s had a very successful multi-programme policy including art movies, cartoons and second run movies.

In the 1980’s the theatre was divided into four screens with wide curved screens and stereophonic sound, with each auditorium seating just 50 but very comfortable.

The Grand Pavois remained open despite a very quiet location and the opening of a huge Gaumont multiplex. Sadly, it was closed on July 10, 2007.
