Theater inaugurated in 1878 Boulevard of the Italians after 2 episodes including fire, before settling in 1921 Boulevard Poissonniere in its current location. The programming is very good, such as "The Scottish syndrome" played by Thierry Lhermitte particular (and 3 other really good players). Recommended.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
