The Hollywood Theatre opened in 1940 and closed in 1985. It became a banquet hall for many years. By early-2017 it had reopened as Hollywood on Main, as a special events and live music venue. The facade has been refaced with new tiling.

These people had their wedding reception at the Hollywood in August 2008, so it may be in use for banquets:

The 1914-1915 edition of The American Motion Picture Directory lists a Grand Theatre at 214 1st Street in Montevideo. I haven’t been able to discover if it occupied the same building that now houses Hollywood on Main. The directory also lists a Montevideo Opera House, with no address.

A trade journal from 1914 noted an expansion underway at a Star Theatre in Montevideo, and a construction journal notes a new theater being built there for a Mr. Starbeck. Either of those might have become the Grand. In 1919, there is a reference to a Monte Theatre, and in 1923 to a State Theatre, so we are still missing some of Montevideo’s theater history.
