Architect(s) : De Saint-Maurice et R. Lemaire

This pavilion was imposing because of its monumental appearance, achieved by means of a vast exterior step and a large-scale door, decorated with frescoes forming a triptych: Cinema, Photo, Phono.

A huge filmstrip, architecturally interpreted, ran along the wings.

The ground floor contained an exhibition of artistic photography and phonograph applications.

On the first floor, which was used for film production and the studio, you could watch the film being developed and projected.

Behind this pavilion was a large room for film events.
