great special-feel theater where i saw several musicals during the seventies such as “mame” and “you can’t stop the music.”
I grew-up and lived in Puerto Rico’s San Juan metropolitan area between 1970 and 1989. my special event cinemas were Plaza1 y 2, Laguna Gardens, and Cinerama. Second best were: Radio City (Saturday Night Fever), Puerto Rico (several james Bond movies), Metropolitan (Sound of Music, Sleeper) and of course Music Hall (Barefoot in the Park and several Disney movies.) those theaters now have mythic qualities in my memories specially when i think of the many joyless, drab, and badly maintained movie theaters of the present.
I agree Manuel; Plaza I y II and Laguna Gardens were something special.
This was a large movie theater. I remember seeing many movies in Cinema 4: all of me, the jerk, fm, porky’s.
These were great theaters: large, huge screens, great sound system. I saw Jaws 2, Conan the Barbarian, Scarface and many others there. Living now in NYC and its current crop of badly maintained theaters, I miss Plaza I y II.
