La boum (The Party)

France - 1980
Location: Paris
Theater(s): Le Paris, Montparnasse Pathé 74

La boum was produced by Marcel Dassault (the former owner of the company which still makes the "Falcon" business jets); release during the Christmas holidays, it did not start as a big success right away, but it really appealed to the teenagers (I was one of them!), and eventually became a big hit. One of the most famous scenes was shot in Marcel Dassault's theater, Le Paris; this single screen theater was one of the largest and probably the most beautiful on the Champs-Elysées (I was shocked when it was torn down, one year before Marcel Dassault's death).

This movie is a nice opportunity to remember this beautiful theater.

after that, just wait for your neighbor to get hungry...
