According to this item from the April 11, 1941, issue of The Film Daily, the Cine Olimpia reopened that year after being completely rebuilt:

“U. S. Equip. Is Feature Of Mexico City Stand

“Mexico City — With Paramount’s ‘Arise, My Love’ on the screen, the new Cine Olimpia, completely rebuilt on the site of the old one, of which Enrico Caruso laid the cornerstone in 1919, has opened on the Avenida 16 de Septiembre, one of Mexico City’s main arteries.

“Formerly American-owned, the new Cine Olimpia is now operated by Edward Noonan and Antonio de G. Osio. It has 2,800 seats from American Seating Co., Western Electric projection and sound system, and is carpeted by Mohawk. The Olimpia is also equipped with air-conditioning. Architect Carlos Crombe, who built the original Olimpia, was responsible for the new house.”
