Inaugurated in 1887, at 153 Boulevard de Strasbourg, the circus theater welcomed comedian and lyrical art troupes from all over France.

The building had a circular shape, with a floor that could turn into a circus ring. All that was needed was to remove the chairs, hence the name given to this theater.

The public was distributed over several levels in the boxes, balconies and galleries. These were affordable for the poor.
Every year, on the occasion of the Saint Michel fair, the famous French circuses: Rancy, Piège etc, gave performances there which have remained famous in posterity.

Then the Circus Theater was transformed into a cinema and was then called “the Omnia”. But in the early hours of February 19, 1922, it was destroyed by fire.
