This was one of the many movie theaters on Ponce De Leon Avenue in Santurce, Puerto Rico. Of the nearly 15 theaters, only the Metro theater is still operating .

The Holiday was located at Stop 22. It was a regular movie theater, but in the 1960’s it became an “adults only” movie house. Later it was torn down and a Fine Arts center was created nearby.

Anecdote: When I first started working with Cobian/Commonwealth, the Holiday was a second run house before it went porno. The ushers' supervisor, “MR.” de la Cruz, was a good friend and associate but a strict supervisor. The Holiday wa showing “7 Thieves” with Edward G. Robisnon == a good heist movie == and one of the ushers was sititng on the last row, when a character in the film shouted to another character “DE LA CRUZ !!!!!!!!!”. and the usher stood in attention. Those were the good old days in San Juan. Best, Andres.
