The Cine Bristol is near Madrid’s city center, at Metro stop Bilbao. The cinema was listed in the early 1990’s as the Cine Bilbao with 1,268 seats.
However, by the mid-1990’s, the cinema had apparently been relocated to the former balcony. My notes from seeing "The Full Monty" on October 18, 1997, is that the exterior was pretty with ironwork. There were vintage looking front doors. On the ground floor, which would have been the lobby and orchestra seating, instead was a Cortes Ingles book-record-video store. Upstairs, in a modernized auditorum was the cinema with 500 seats, which I counted as 24 rows of 17 seats each, a screen that I estimated at 35 feet wide for scope films, and a red ridged curtain that rose & lowered. The Cine Bristol was then operated by the same Spanish chain that operated the Palacio de la Prensa on the Gran Via. It was closed around 2005.
