L'Arlequin in Paris/France

L'Arlequin is a  cinema in Paris opened in 1934 as the Lux Rennes. Lux, because it was situated in the building of its patron, the Compagnie Parisienne d'èletricité. The art-deco, air-conditioned 500-seat theatre, with 12-metre screen and adjacent bar was somewhat luxurious for the period.
In 1962 French filmmaker, director, Actor and screenwriter Jacques Tati acquired the cinema and named it L'Arlequin. From 1976 to 1991 the theatre was programmed by the Soviet film export agency to serve as a showcase for Soviet films, allowing to discover directors like Andrei Tarkovsky and Andrei Konchalovsky.
L'Arlequin regained ist current name in 1991. Today the cinema has three halls with 94, 102 and 395 places. It is still known for ist specialisation in German and Russian movies.
