Max Linder Panorama is one of several classic art deco cinemas in 9th and 18th arrondissements. Unlike its landmark neighbor, the 3000- seat Rex, Max Linder has an unassuming exterior. Built in 1912, the theatre was re-named after the French silent film pioneer Max Linder purchased it in 1914. The theatre was renovated in 1987, preserving a beautiful art deco interior. While the decor is retro, the theatre itself has a state-of-the-art sound system and a huge curved screen (thus the name Panorama). The result is an immersing movie-going experience, It’s an ideal venue for seeing one of the many 3D movies to recently hit the box office.
A surprising 600-person capacity is made possible by seating on three levels. Those interested in seats on the middle level are advised to arrive early. The seats on the top level risk an obstructed view, while people seated on the bottom risk a strained neck from looking up at the screen. For more information and showtimes, visit the website.
