The 1,728-seat theatre is the centrepiece of the building. Speakers and audiences benefit from perfect acoustics and unrivalled sound clarity, making the Theatre "THE" reference on the Left Bank in this field.
During its 80 years of existence, the theatre of the Maison de la Mutualité has hosted many historic events and welcomed a host of legendary personalities; Charlie Chaplin recorded the music for some of his films here; it was the venue for several of Marcel Cerdan's memorable boxing matches; Edith Piaf and the French singer Léo Ferré performed here and Jacques Brel gave his last concert on the theatre's stage.
Boasting the latest stage technologies, the layout of the theatre can now adapted to host new types of events. With its own state-of-the-art production room, the theatre is fully air-conditioned and can seat 1,728 people (1,136 in the stalls and 592 in the balconies). The Theatre has a 201m² stage with all the latest equipment and orators are remarkably close to the audience, thanks to the fore-stage, which is barely 29m from the last row of the stalls.
Thanks to an ingenious system of retractable rails, the stall seats can be moved under the stage, thereby freeing up 800m² of space, which is ideal for receptions, gala dinners, fashion parades or product launches. The seat layout can be adapted to the exact number required, from 350 to 1,728 people in Theatre layout, and from 180 to 550 people in Cabaret layout.
