My notes from October 17, 1997 seeing Spanish director Almodovar’s “Carne Tremula” (Live Flesh) which was set in Madrid, are for main floor, 22 rows of 19 seats, aisle, 19 seats, and two balconies, with total of 1750 seats.
I estimated the screen was 50 feet wide. There was a red curtain in front of the screen.
The auditorium was very handsome with a huge backlit grill above the screen and a dome at the center of the ceiling.
Two additional screens were in the basement.
It would be a shame if the main cinema ceased to be a cinema! And, if the interior were gutted, that would be even more terrible.

I recall going to see this theater’s exterior. I’m not sure if this is the building, with the sign, maybe:

There’s another photo from November 2005 of the interior of the restaurant (not showing anymore cinema decor than the exterior photo does) so the conversion was as least as early as 2005.

HowardBHaas commented about Boyd Theatre on Nov 20, 2007 at 5:34 am

Live Nation is selling their theaters that presents legit shows, because they want to be a Rock N Roll CONCERT company. That’s why they chose a name like “Live Nation” in the first place. Recently, they sold their ownership interests in the former movie palaces in Chicago’s Loop, because those are legit theaters.

Especially since it could get gutted, I’d hope there are photos somewhere of the ornate interior!

I seem to recall a listing in 1992 when I first visited Spain, that it was then open. Later in the 1990’s, I visited the store but wasn’t photographing. It does have a wonderful exterior.

I’d like to second inclusion on this list of San Francisco’s Metro as an intact theater that can be saved, and important for all the reasons stated at that theater’s page.

And,the building shown in that large photo next to it (opposite direction than the Dunkin Donuts shop) is the Palacio de la Musica.

I’d like to start an endangered theater list for SPAIN with two grand movie palaces on the Gran Via in Madrid, both of which have been proposed for retail use instead:

Yes, that photo looks like this theater, never mind translations.
