Deep in the catacombs beneath Paris, the vast majority of which are officially closed to the public, police have discovered a previously uncharted 400 sq meter cave with terrace-like seats carved into the sides, a professionally installed electrical system, whisky bar, full-sized cinema screen, projection equipment, and library of film noir and other movies. True underground cinema, probably operated by some sort of cabal or sect. Police have no idea who the group is, but apparently they’re not alone.
Patrick Alk, a photographer who has published a book on the urban underground exploration movement and claims to be close to the group, told RTL radio the cavern’s discovery was “a shame, but not the end of the world”. There were “a dozen more where that one came from,” he said. “You guys have no idea what’s down there.”
