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.

When I saw a movie a decade ago, it was an awesome single screen with 2 balcony theater, with 1750 seats. The other 2 screens were present, but not carved from the main auditorium.

Listed in todays Variety as having hosted the Spanish premier of SPIDER-MAN 3, so it is still going!

This was the World Premier home of Marisol (Pepa Flores) movies during the sixties. She was one of Spainish cinema’s biggest box office draws ever and is now retired.
