A beautiful theater in the theater district


On the Grand Boulevard (precisely 30 Boulevard Bonne Nouvelle, 10th arrondissement) there is a beautiful theatre called le Théâtre du Gymnase Marie Bell. It was built in 1820 and became quickly a very hot spot (a that time, this area was a very "in" place) where the Paris bourgeoisie had to be seen... Today, theatre is less popular but le Théâtre du Gymnase still stars the greatest actors and comedians of France. Click here if you want to see some photos of the inside.

  2. I have heard the name "théatre du gymnase" since decades, but i never saw it before today Eric's nice pic.
    I didn't know this theatre was so old.
    I also thought it was much larger, probably because of the word "gymnase"...

  6. I agree with lisi. It's the red neon that makes the combination of history and modern day just do damned beautiful!
