The Grand Rex is more than


I already showed you Le Grand Rex, a famous movie theater located on the Grands Boulevards in the 2nd arrondissement. Well, since last November it has changed a great deal as they added a huge digital wall on its facade, kinda like a small Time Square in New York. Very impressive and very unique for Paris, it's definitely worth the look. It's also much more than a movie theater... Last evening the famous Pr. Muhammad Yunus, the famous economist from Bangladesh who developed the concept of microcredit made an appearance there. I wish I had seen him.

  2. You get the prize, Anon!

    Eric, as soon as I saw the photo "Times Square" popped into my head, so it was funny that you mentioned it in your description. Great photo! I'll check into this Yunus fellow, though I have no idea what microcrediting is.

  3. Eric, this is a great photo. I love how you've got the exposure just right, to capture all the lovely detail. And the angle makes it look so dynamic! I've never seen this theatre but will make sure I check it out when I get to Paris later this year.

  5. I think the photo is a bit phallic. I mean that as a compliment. Am I a bad person to say that right as I'm about to sign off? Good night.

  6. Clever angle.

    I find the concept of micro-credit in developing countries small communities a very appealing idea. I, too, would love to hear this man speak.

    I think it is even more suggested because of these three Red letters! Suzy photo is suggesting too isn't it?
    I feel more like going to Rex than go to -ex though right now. I'm too old fashioned but never mind. I will not change myself ;) never mind. Lol

  14. The pic is great, but I for one can do with less "Times Square"...even in NYC!

    As for the micro-creidt, there used to be a show called "Penny Revolution" in HD we watched which followed the borrowers...it was really good. Unfortunately it was a Zoom HD channel and our cable provider dropped all 4 of their channels!

  15. The Rex is a wonderful Art Deco theater. I've never been inside, but the facade is fabulous.
