In 2004 a troupe of french officers in training were exploring the famous Paris Catacombs. If you aren’t aware, it’s a 4.3 mile stretch of dark caverns that sprawl under the city– housing between 6-7 million dead. Most of the catacombs are closed off to the public, because it’s so easy to get lost and never find your way out.

On this training run, the officers came across a path that said “No Public Entry”– they proceeded further and suddenly heard dogs all around them, snarling. They realized it was an advanced PA system, triggering dog noises to scare them off.

Going further, they found 3000 square feet of galleries, a bar, a lounge, and most famously: a movie theater. Seats were carved out of the limestone like an amphitheater. The place was also mysteriously professionally wired up– professional electricity and phone lines.

The officers left, and decided they’d see where the power and telephone was coming from. They returned three days later with professionals, only to find all power and phone lines cut. The only thing left behind was a note saying “Do not look for us.”

We now know this was the work of an underground society called Les UX. They’re also famous for breaking into the Pantheon Clock and secretly repairing it with the help of a master clockmaker. They announced this at a pantheon meeting one day in front of the caretaker, who promptly called police.
