Cool!! Theatres, along with railway stations and markets are amongst my favourite buildings in cities.

Would be interesting to know the names of the many fine theatres you've depicted.

Can you please tell me the names of these beauties?

Much appreciated if you can let me know.

-----------------------

Thanks for that stephane

Great series of photos. Is there still an opera house called the Theatre Italienne or does it have another name now? Thanks.

About 8 years ago my friend from Quebec and I were spending several months in Paris and I friend of his was performing (dancing) at Théâtre de la Villa (2nd pic). It's right on Place Châtelet on the edge of the Seine river, just across the threater on the 3rd pic . The friend performing in the Canadian dance company had special access to the theater and sneaked us all the way up to the roof via a narrow iron stair. Although nothing like the Eiffel or Montparnasse tower, we had a very nice, personal view over much of the area around by night. It was very nice but very cold, and I figured I was among the few people among everyone who's lived and visited Paris that has been up on that roof to admire part of the city from above.
