For a truly unique movie-going experience, check out La Pagode in Paris where you can enjoy films while housed in a beautifully designed pagoda. After becoming a cinema in 1931, this venue has gained a name for presenting cutting-edge French films. Today, this tradition continues with the addition of a monthly Japanese film screening and discussion group.
While the films are interesting, the cinema itself is worth going for. You can expect to see a quaint yet charming garden just outside, where you can wait for the showing to begin. If you’re feeling more inquisitive, look closely for the small details in the architecture of this pagoda. Subtle colors, painted flowers alongside intricately carved wood, sinuous shapes, and natural imagery create a breathtaking overall scene while not being overpowering. Use our Paris travel route planner to add La Pagode and other attractions to your Paris vacation plans.
