Proscenium reminded of Radio City Music Hall

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.
