This cinema opened in 1922 as Catalunya. The architect was Albert Bourdon, same of the Opera, Ideal and many more. Renamed Standart (1926), Cosmos (1966), Cosmos 70 (it can project 70 mm films) and again Cosmos.

Closed in 1987, reoponed in 1990 just as pullman and microcinema. Closed and saled in 2006. Bought and reopened by University of Buenos Aires in 2009.

In 1955 the Cosmos became a mythical cinema of Buenos Aires when the place was acquired by Mr. Vainikoff to show exclusively soviet films. He had to fight against censors and dictatorships who disliked “communist propaganda”.

Under the “dirty war” Battleship Potemkin (Einsestein) was authorised just for one day exhibition although later was screened several times for almost 6.000 people.
