January 1998

Located just off the Avenue des Champs-Elysees. The Theatre de L'Avenue was opened prior to 1946. On 14th June 1968 it reopened as the 600-seat Paramount-Elysees, screening “Boom!” starring Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton. The Paramount-Elysees had been remodelled by architect Georges Peynet. This was followed in September 1968 with “Romeo and Juliet” starring Leonard Whiting and the next film was a 70mm presentation of Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl” which ran for 38 weeks. By 1975 it was still a single screen.

In 1981 it was purchased by Gaumont and now operating as a four screen cinema, it was incorporated into their almost adjacent Gaumont Ambassade which had opened in 1959 and has its own page on Cinema Treasures.

It had closed by 2019 and was being gutted for conversion into a Lancome store.
