Located in the Habana Vieja (old town) district of Havana, on the Prado at the corner of Esquina Colon in the Jaruco neighborhood.
The Cine-Teatro Fausto was built in 1938 and designed in an Art Deco style, by architect Saturino Parajon. It has a simple Art deco facade, with vertical patterns above the entrance, flanked by horizontal delineations and has curved corners. Decorative botanical friezes and reliefs suggesting castlations on top.
It was the first theatre in Havana to have air-conditioning and its walls contain a cavity, protecting it from outside noise.
In recent years cinema use as been dropped in favour of comedy type shows on-stage.
