History and Fun Facts about Le 13ème Art theatre

Opened in 2017 by a French-Canadian theatrical group, this contemporary venue was once home to a movie theater featuring one of the biggest screens in the country. After the cinema closed down, the venue remained empty for over a decade before undertaking a complete renovation by the same architects responsible for the Bercy Accor Arena and the Institut du Monde Arabe. Featuring an architectural motif of mirrors, light enters this venue from all angles, despite its location underneath a bustling shopping center. The venue was saved from becoming similar another store or fitness center with the simple notion that "Paris can never have too many theaters."


One of the founders of Le 13ème Art theatre stated at the inauguration ceremony that “Theatre means sitting in the darkness to hear the light” and this modern venue reflects precisely this notion. The Le 13ème Art theatre is one of the most contemporary Parisian venues, and its location by the busy shopping center off the beaten tourist tracks means you get to see a local side of Paris. Another fast fact? It’s right by the Parisian Chinatown, so enjoy some culinary treasures from around the world before or after the show!


Featuring both a large amphitheater with 900 seats and a smaller theater 150 seats, the entire venue can be privatized and adapted to accommodate specific needs. The show programme featured an eclectic and international mix, embodying the notion that no artistic barriers and imaginative boundaries are to exist in this new Parisian cultural center.
