The Cine Callao, designed by architect Luis Gutierrez Soto in a ‘Classical’ style and constructed from 1925 to 1927, is one of the famed movie palaces of the Gran Via. It has a prominent corner site and was originally built as a twin theatre, with a second ‘open air’ auditorium on the roof, which has been closed for many years.
The interior was re-modeled in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s in an Art Deco style which swept away the former Classical interior. In the 1990’s, when I visited, there were 1,147 seats including two balconies. On the main floor seating, I counted 30 rows of 24 seats, but I didn’t visit the closed balcony. I’m not sure if the balcony is where the second screen is. As of 2007, auditorium 1 has 1,101 seats and auditorium 2 has 429 seats.
