This movie theater was inaugurated on July 19, 1913, initially named Trivoli Gardens, later el Abanico and finally Cine Prado.
I bet he has his own private cinÃ©.
I wonder if Castro ever goes there?
I purchased a postcard of the Prado around 1921 which I scanned and put on my Flickr stream: View link
I’d say it’s from it’s opening year, this is when postcards are usually made of cinemas, although of course it could be older. I date it at 1921 since that is when THE KID (which is advertised) is released. Who knows which film that Viola Dana stars in could be translated as ‘Millonaria por una hora’ (millionaire for an hour) from around that era?
