Inaugurated in April 2, 1913, the structure is quite large comprising of three auditoriums: Théâtre des Champs- Élysées, The Comédie des Champs- Élysées, Studio des Champs- Élysées, and a restaurant. The main theatre which has 1905 seats is Italian styled originally constructed to host guests visiting the theatre to watch opera shows and concerts.
