To Ursula and other interested parties: the Rex Cinema is still in business, it's a famous Art Deco landmark; now it shows typical current films, I think, as well as some special stuff sometimes. It has a website www.legrandrex.com which gives you its history, programming, etc. It's near the Bonne Nouvelle metro stop. They also have concerts there sometimes (like Bjork is there this month). When I was in Paris, someone who lived there told me the Film Museum (Henri Langlois) shows their historic films at the Rex, but I don't know about that. The Film Museum is unfortunately closed right now for restorations or something. Here is a good, but limited, description of that part of Paris, including the Rex Cinema, from the online Timeout guide:http://www.timeout.com/paris/sight/o...oulevards.html

Andi: Parc Monceau is featured in that wonderful old film of Gigi based on the colette book. You will also see the Bois. For everyone else who loves Paris and think they know it all-wait til you read The Flanuer by Edmund White. I promise you will be delighted.

Elvira, can you bear to send it out one more time. I'd love to have a copy to read on the plane Monday.

Merci

My favorite non-touristy things to do in Paris are: Go to the suburb of Neuilly and play tennis on the public courts with the locals; go to Amin Kader at 1 Rue de la Paix and shop for soap, and other bath products. The smell of the shop alone is worth the trip; go to Le Marche de Buci on the Rue de Buci in St. Germain des Pres and shop for wonderful flowers and fruit at the markets; eat like a pig at Violon d'Ingres.
