On October 26, 1997, I saw a Spanish movie, the zombie horror flick "Memorias del Angel Caido" at the Cine Azul. The walls and ceiling of the auditorium were orange in color, not blue (Azul). The auditorium sat 266 seats, including a balcony, with the main floor having 12 rows of 16 seats each. No curtain was used before the not very huge screen, the size of which I estimated at 15 to 20 feet wide.

In 2007, in the face of declining attendance for Gran Via cinemas, Madrid’s Municipal Council approved the conversion of the closed cinema to a restaurant. The Cine Azul was the smallest single screen theater on the Gran Via. The theater is now a TGI Friday’s restaurant.

There’s another photo from November 2005 of the interior of the restaurant (not showing anymore cinema decor than the exterior photo does) so the conversion was as least as early as 2005.
