This independent art house cinema is one of the city’s remaining bohemian gems and is renowned for its Oriental interior and Japanese garden. Built in 1896, it is one of Paris’ oldest cinemas; its main screen is, in fact, a former ballroom. In the 1960s the Pagode famously participated in French New Wave programming, showcasing films by François Truffaut et al. It was last redesigned in 1972 and is today protected by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. Stop by for tea in the garden of this Left Bank institution during the summer months.


The Left Bank’s 7th arrondissement lies just below the river Seine and is one of the most prestigious districts of Paris owing to its wealth of government buildings and residing dignitaries. It is also home to the city’s premier visitor attraction the Eiffel Tower.
