About La Maison Française

The Embassy of France in the United States has long considered intercultural cooperation essential to fostering friendly and fruitful relationships between countries and has relied on a unique facility to fulfill this mission: La Maison Française.

Since its creation in 1985, this theater and reception hall has earned renown for the quality of its hospitality and the diversity of its programming. Featuring 11,250 square feet of space, including a landscaped terrace and 285-seat auditorium, the facility is designed to accommodate a wide variety of activities, from business conferences to film screenings, art exhibitions, panel discussions, and charity receptions.

After 30 years of continuous use, some of its key features and equipment must be modernized. The French Ministry of European and Foreign Affairs has already demonstrated its unwavering commitment by pursuing a full renovation of the sound system as well as major infrastructure and security work. Three major projects remain to be upgraded: La Maison Française’s video capabilities, lighting system, and auditorium seating.
