La Pagode was built by the director of the department store Le Bon Marché, a very rich man. In that time, around 1896, as a gift to his wife, who left him a year later unfortunately. At that time in Paris it was very much in fashion the japanese style. The Pagode was brought to France and built in the... More

Having pre-booked tickets to a subtitled film at Le Pagode, we were really looking forward to resting our feet and watching some great cinema. Unfortunately, we arrived late after having difficulty map reading but were kindly let in to the screen and seated. It really was magnificent, definitely worth a visit. Very relaxing and a special experience. Must recommend for... More

This cinema is a 19th century architectural wonder. It's petite with very cosy gardens and a magical Japanese influence throughout - as this was the trend in Paris at the time. The cinema itself offers only 3 screens (think a 4th one is opening soon). So it's cosy inside too. The screens are quite small and intimate. You get a... More

Having exhausted ourselves viewing masterpieces of French painting, we needed a bit of a rest. The weather was cold and wet and our hotel room tv didn't show anything entertaining. So we went to the movies! Many English language films shown in France use subtitles rather than dubbing...good news for non-French speakers. We had the most delightful experience. La Pagode... More
