The Cine Estadio opened on 4th December 1949 with Walt Disney’s "So Dear To My Heart" starring Bobby Driscoll. Initially seating was provided for 4,000, all on a single floor. The building engineer was Carlos Fauto Tomassi, and the architects Frederico Beltran and Puga. The proscenium opening bore a resemblence to that at Radio City Music Hall, New York.

The Cinema Estadio was still open as a cinema in 1971. In 1988, it became a live theatre, re-named Teatro Silvia Pinel, staging comedies, musicals and spectaculars. By 2014 it had been taken over by a church.

Teatro Silvia Pinal decamped from these quarters some years ago, and since 2009 the Cine Estadio has been occupied by a church called the CenĂ¡culo de la Fe. As Google is not fetching a street view for our page, here’s one direct from Google Maps.

Three photos of Cine Estadio can be seen on this page of Boxoffice, February 4, 1950. A nocturnal photo of the front can be seen at lower right on this page of the same issue.
