Quirky and entertaining
Such a good idea to host an Escape Game in a theatre. From the entrance to backstage, you will travel through this magnificent little theatre, trying to resolve the enigma. I recommend everyone to go and live this quirky experience.
Right in the heart of the bohemian chic Montmartre neighbourhood, the Théâtre Lepic (previously known as the Ciné 13 Théâtre) opened in the 1970s. Only 10 years later, the venue was purchased by a French film director Claude Lelouch and underwent a complete makeover. Come the 1980s, the Théâtre Lepic was decked out 20s flair, in preparation for the filming of Édith et Marcel. The movie filming has long since finished, but the 1920s art deco style remains the signature touch at the intimate Théatre Lepic. The venue has since remained in the Lelouch family, passing from one generation to the next, truly embracing both the cinematic and theatrical talents of the family.
Like many Parisian playhouses, the venue became multi-purpose, and was used for many years as a neighbourhood cinema as well as hosting live theatrical performances. From revisited classics to contemporary works, the venue now boasts a varied show programme often featuring upcoming talents in the Parisian theatre scene, such as Alexis Michalik himself. For a bit of interesting trivia, the world record for the longest concert ever performed was also right in this very theatre, Canadian pianist Chilly Gonzales lasting 27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds over 2 days in 2009!
Featuring a cozy bar for a drink before or after the show, you might even run into the performers! An intimate local theatre, cherished by the Montmartre residents and always remaining at the brink of cinematic and theatrical innovations for close to 50 years, the Théâtre Lepic is a hidden local treasure, a must-see in Paris!
