The Paris Theater is a 581-seat single-screen movie theater, located in Manhattan in New York City. It often shows art films and foreign films in their original languages. By the announcement on Jan. 20, 2016 of the closing of the Ziegfeld, the Paris became Manhattan's sole-surviving single-screen cinema.
Located at 4 West 58th Street, just west of Fifth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, it has specialized in foreign (especially French language) and independent films. It is located across the street from the Plaza Hotel.
Management and ownership
In 1990, Pathé lost its lease. Loews Theatres then took over the operation and it was known as the Fine Arts Theatre for a while. In 1994 the space was purchased by Sheldon Solow, a New York City–based real-estate developer and owner.
