A 12-story-high sphere covered with 6,433 polished steel triangles that reflect the Parisian sky, the Géode is an exceptional structure. Since it opened in 1985, this unique cinema has been offering incomparable image and sound quality for the whole family, from 180° Imax screen and 3D projections to spatialised sound. The 400-seat amphitheatre boasts a 1,000 m2 screen measuring 26 metres in diameter, and Omnimax technology uses an image nine times larger than the 35 mm format of regular film, extending beyond the maximum field of human vision!

A virtual journey

The family friendly programme is a fascinating exploration of the richness of our planet’s fauna, flora and natural phenomena. Discover a hurricane seen from the sky, swim with whales or treat yourself to exceptional walks in the heart of a natural park or deep in outer space.

The Géode has extended its universe to include the world of virtual reality. In the main hall, experience the world like never before in a journey of discovery lasting almost an hour. Composed of three thematic spaces, the virtual reality circuit includes a cinema section to ease you gently into the experience, seated in comfortable armchairs, a gaming zone to test your reflexes, and an interactive living room where you are free to move around.

Discover the Géode through one of the treasure hunts in the Paris Region Adventures application specially designed for families and downloadable free of charge.
