Paris Theatre
The Plaza Hotel, which sits directly across the street, may no longer function exclusively as a hotel - it has added condominium units -but the Paris, with its plush seats, plush carpets, microscopic lobby, scalloped balcony and policy of showing just one film a week, remains as it long has been.The 586-seat theater is one of the oldest art houses in the United States. Opened by Pathe Cinema in 1948, the Paris started out showing French films (“La Symphonie Pastorale,” which ran for eight months), and it still shows French films, both revivals (“Belle de Jour”) and new ones (“Amelie”). When French films are not available, the theater shows movies that seem French, including the Foreign Films Lite oeuvre of Merchant and Ivory.
