The Grand Rex in Paris
The Grand Rex was founded in 1932, on the initiative of Jacques Haïk, a very ambitious film exhibitor and distributor. It is, in fact, a major project that sees the light of day, making the Grand Rex the largest cinema in Europe, with an area of 2,000 m² and a height of 35 meters.
The building shines with its Art Deco facade, its 3,300 seats and its huge screen, never before seen. And if the success is there at the inauguration, Jacques Haïk nevertheless takes stock a few years later. The cinema was then bought by the Gaumont company, which then sold it to Jean Hellmann, Alan Byre and Laudy Lawrence.
Despite the Second World War and the grip of the Germans, the Grand Rex quickly reopened in 1945, and the screening of the film was only the highlight of a gigantic spectacle. The ” Féerie des eaux ” is also one of the first successful shows, which can still be seen today during the Christmas holidays.
Over the years, the Grand Rex cinema has increased its number of cinemas, allowing today to accommodate more than one million spectators.
The greatest films and the greatest artists then passed through the Grand Rex: the first Disney screened in France (Pinocchio, in 1946), Gary Cooper, Peter Jackson, Tom Cruise, Quentin Tarantino, Richard Gere, Peter Jackson…
