Les cinémas Gaumont Pathé is a Cinema chain owned by Pathé, with operations in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Belgium and Tunisia. The company is market leader in each country, with the exception of Belgium and Tunisia.[1]


Les cinémas Gaumont Pathé was formed in 2001 as a joint venture between the French film production and distribution companies Pathé and Gaumont, respectively owned by Jérôme Seydoux and Nicolas Seydoux. Gaumont owned 34% and Pathé owned 66% of the shares in the joint venture. During the first years of operation, the company was called Europalaces, but it was later changed to the current name.

Until 2010 the company operated several cinema's in Italy, but these locations were closed due to difficulties in the Italian market. In 2010 the company strengthened its position in the Netherlands by acquiring the Minerva chain, these locations were transformed to Pathé cinemas. In 2014 the Dutch branch strengthened its position further by acquiring its competitor CineMec. This acquisition included the exciting cinema in Ede and two construction projects in Utrecht and Nijmegen. In contrary to the Minerva locations CineMec kept its own brand for a while, but has fused completely with Pathé in may 2018.[3] In 2015 the company entered the Belgium cinema market by acquiring Cinepointcom, a movie chain that consists of 5 locations in Wallonia. In 2016 the company bought the cinema operations of EuropaCorp for $21 million. The deal included the Aéroville Cinema and the construction project in Marseille.[4] After they entered the Belgium market in 2016, the company intends to enter the Tunisian market, with the opening of a multiplex in the capital Tunis in 2018.[2]

On 1 March 2017 it was announced that Gaumont would sell its 34% stake in Les cinémas Gaumont Pathé to Pathé for €380 million.[5] Gaumont wanted to focus more on the production and distribution of content.

On 18 October 2017 Pathé announced that they will buy three cinema's in the Netherlands, two cinema's are located in the capital of the province of Friesland Leeuwarden and one is located in Hengelo. The takeover will be completed on 1 December 2017.[6]

The company announced that it had acquired Euroscoop cinemas, with 11 locations in the Netherlands and Belgium, on the 14th of November 2019.[7] That same month it was announced that the CineAlpes circuit was bought by Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont.[8]


Throughout their cinemas the company offers multiple different technologies. They operate several IMAX locations and in May 2017 it was announced that they will open an additional 5 locations, bringing the total to 28. The company also partnered with Dolby on several locations with different techniques, there are multiple locations that feature Dolby Atmos and in 2017 it was made public that they will open 10 Dolby Cinema locations. Seven of these locations will be in France, where they will introduce the technique. The other three locations will be opened in the Netherlands, were competitor Vue Cinemas already operates two Dolby Cinema venues.[9]

In 2017 they partnered with the Korean company CJ 4DPlex to open the first 4DX location in France. During the Cannes Film Festival it was announced that Les cinémas Gaumont Pathé will open 30 4DX cinemas throughout France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Belgium before 2020.[10] On 22 December 2017 CJ 4DPlex announced in a press release that they have extended their agreement with Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé. It's stated that the company added an additional 20 4DX cinemas on top of the original 30 4DX cinemas, bringing the total to 50. All 50 4DX cinemas will be opened by 2020, with 40 in France, 5 in the Netherlands, 4 in Switzerland and 1 in Belgium.[11]

With the opening of the 500th 4DX location worldwide at Pathé Belle Épine in April 2018, the company announced that they extended their partnership with CJ 4DPlex once again with the opening of two ScreenX auditoriums in Paris in June 2018.[12] Additionally, it has installed the first "4DX with ScreenX" (now 4DX Screen) theater, a combination of the 4DX and ScreenX theaters, outside the Asia region in Paris.[13]

The IMAX corporation stated in a press release on 12 June that it will strengthen its relationship with Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé. They will do that by expanding the total number of locations and also by upgrading existing locations to IMAX laser with IMAX's 12-channel sound technology. The expanding and upgrading will start in 2018 and all locations will be upgraded by 2023, making Les Cinémas Gaumont Pathé the first multi-territory network to be fully powered by IMAX laser.[14]
