Le Nouveau Moulin Rouge Cinéma
The Moulin Rouge cabaret opened in October 1889 in Montmartre. A red windmill still dominates the front of the building. The most famous visitor was the painter Henri Toulouse Lautrec. It was here the Parisian underworld met the upper class life of the priviledged.
Politicians, ambassadors and even the Prince of Wales came to mix with the courtesans, can-can women and performers. The Moulin Rouge became the home of the Parisian underworld.
