  • Nice small theatre with very very french architecture. We went and saw "The Mist" and it was very entertaining. Would have been good if there were subtitles.

It is great opportunity to experience this "palace", grateful to mankind bringing this to present and especially Vietnamese and French who designed and still kept this as stunning as it is from 1897. It is a great honour.
