Cour Saint-Émilion, lined by old warehouses with shops and bistros, leads through the largest movie theater multiplex in Paris to the Seine. Valode & Pistre combined the old and the new in subtle ways. The façades of the 18 theaters, built as concrete boxes, are clad with metal blinds while steel grids symbolize screens. Vertical corridors leading to the theaters ensure that moviegoers don’t run into each other when arriving or exiting. At night, the structure is lit in blue.
