The Louxor is a historic Parisian cinema that has recently undergone a major renovation. After having been abandoned for years, this important cultural landmark was finally reopened earlier this year. Now, guests staying at one of the Grands Hôtels Parisiens can see this extraordinary space for themselves -- and they can even catch a flick while they are at it.
From now until August 27, 2013, a series of movies from the film noir genre will be playing at the Louxor, giving visitors the chance to discover some retro film classics in a space that is both retro and classic itself. Eleven film noir movies are scheduled to be shown throughout the upcoming weeks, including works from visionaries such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang and Alfred Hitchcock.
Non-French speakers will be especially relieved to hear that all of the films will be shown in their original language, with French subtitles underneath. Showings are scheduled for both the afternoon and the evening, so visitors to Paris should easily be able to squeeze one, or several, into their itineraries.
After the film, patrons at the Louxor can head over to the cinema's bar, which also offers some snacks and light dishes for those who are feeling a bit peckish. The emphasis is on the high quality of the food products and of the artisanal wines that are served there, carefully selected by the staff. The bar is located on the third floor of the Louxor, providing patrons with a beautiful terrace where they can enjoy a view of the beautiful Parisian skyline.
Visitors should note that this bar is only accessible to those who are seeing at movie at the Louxor, so be prepared to grab a ticket for a show before heading up to the bar, which is open every day from the afternoon until 10 p.m.
