Film buff's memories of the Champs-Élysées, by Éric Neuhoff

The event went almost unnoticed. Something is lost. What will we become? We will no longer walk up the Champs-Élysées and turn our heads towards XXL posters. In the past, the place was full of refuges where you could admire larger-than-life actors. That was it. From bottom to top, from the Roundabout, it didn't stop.

In the old Pariscope, the “8th arrondissement” section contained several pages. We had a choice. The Coliseum opened the ball (today, a telephone store). The Marignan was opposite the Embassy. Sports clothing is sold there. The George V has drawn the curtain. It will soon be a hotel. The Biarritz occupied a corner on the left sidewalk, before the Fouquet’s.

There was also Le Triomphe, which programmed Emmanuelle for years. And Boris Vian who found nothing better to do than succumb to a heart attack in front of the adaptation of his I'll Spit on Your Graves during a screening at the Marbeuf. Poor Joe Dassin. He would no longer find everything he wanted nearby. Now, the Place de l’Etoile has been reduced to a minimum. Responsible: Mrs. Hidalgo, surly like an usherette who hasn't gotten her tip.

Let's be fair: there remains the Publicis, the only survivor with Le Balzac, in a perpendicular street. For how long?
