Is there a way to verify the date on this photo?
It seems to be the same one that Wiki lists as being 1914 (before the 1915 fire) -just cropped.
This being the second incarnation since the original burned down in 1915
Does the venue extend off to the sides as well? Seems very small/tight in there
TIL – Moulin Rouge is known as the birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance.
Id love to see some old interior photos of the building through the years. If anyone has a link to some historic photos, that’d be awesome. I tried searching but all the interior shots on google seem to be recent.
I’m starting to think that movie might have been satire.
Had a friend that thought moulin meant sheep. We called it the Mouton Rouge once we figured out the mistake.

Came here looking for actual history porn. Was disappointed.
