No one has favorited this photo yet
This website in Spanish translated says it opened in 17 September 1952, and that it replaced earlier theatres of the same name. Turned into a live theatre in 1959 after the revolution, then renaned after a revolutionary from the 1920s, Julio Antonio Mella, and inaugurated (presumably with the new cursive neon) on 28 April 1961. The old photo might be opening day, as Quien Dijo Miedo was the Spanish title for Fearless Fagan, released August 1952. It was a flop ! El Gran Pecador, The Gret Sinner, was 3 years old by this time, and also a flop !
