Now That Netflix Saved the Paris Theatre, Here’s What to Expect

  • Indiewire
Thanks to Netflix, Manhattan still has The Paris. The 571-seat theater, and the borough’s last single-screen outlet, is now under a long-term lease from owner Sheldon Solow. A November 25 Netflix press release announced that it planned to “use the theater for special events, screenings, and theatrical releases of its films.”

Sounds simple enough, but things rarely are for the distribution disruptor. While it’s expected that The Paris will host its annual lineup of titles seeking film honors, the Netflix brand is very broad. Next year’s standouts might include the “Rebecca” remake with Lily James and Armie Hammer, Dee Rees’ “The Last Thing He Wanted” with Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck, or Ryan Murphy’s remake of “The Boys in the Band.” The Paris also could play Michael Bay’s upcoming “6 Underground” starring Ryan Reynolds, or the Taylor Swift documentary “Miss Americana,” which opens the Sundance Film Festival next month.
