BORDEAUX – CINEMA UTOPIA

The cinema UTOPIA is located in a building from the middle of the 6th century. This place became a cinema only in the 1990s after a very long history…..


Utopia was initially a place of worship. The church of St Simeon was used for the offices and the great masses.

The church of Saint Siméon grew up over the centuries and became in the eighteenth century one of the largest parishes of Bordeaux.

Following the French Revolution, Utopia lost its status as a place of worship and became a military site, more precisely an arsenal for the construction of military equipment.

At the end of the XIXth century, the old church goes as far as serving as a room for a company specializing in the keys to open boxes of sardines in oil
