"Ce cinématographe Pathé fut construit par l'architecte bordelais Hector Loubatié. La date portée sur le bâtiment indique qu'il date de 1908. Il constitue ainsi le premier véritable cinéma de Montpellier. Ce premier cinéma était doté d'une salle de 500 m² pouvant accueillir jusqu'à 900 personnes (parterre + balcon).
Sur la façade en pierres de taille on peut voir des guirlandes surmontées d'un coq, emblème de la compagnie des frères Pathé. L'ensemble a été sculpté par le ciseau du sétois François Acher en 1909.
Ce cinéma a ouvert ses portes le 6 janvier 1909. Ce cinéma surnommé "le Pathé" a fonctionné jusqu'en 1980.
Le 9 avril 1996, la façade est inscrite au titre des Monuments historiques.
Le cinéma, propriété de la Ville, a été depuis transformé en centre culturel : le centre Rabelais."
