On 10 thermidor year 15 (29 July 1807), Napoleon I of France signed a decree reducing the number of theatres in Paris to eight, giving the force of law to a decree of the interior minister of 25 April that same year. This measure cut short an expansion in theatres.

Following is a list of the theatres that remained.

Grands théâtres

Théâtres secondaires

The decree did not remain in force after Napoleon's fall in 1814.[citation needed]
