TuileriesI’m pretty sure the station they used was in Belleville somewhere on the M°11. It’s a less popular line and could conceivably be shut down for a few hours without as much hassle as the actual Tuileries which is basically smack dab in the center of town.

* For the record, he pronounces it /boo-SEH-mi/.
