The Cine Trocadero was considered one of the finest theatres in the Western Hemisphere in 1945 (soon after it opened). Designed in a simple Art Moderne style by architect Rafael Ruano, the exterior has narrow horizontal bands containing glass, allowing light into the large foyer, which is finished in highly polished marble. The large auditorium (capacity around 2,000) has seating in orchestra and balcony levels. On each side of the splay walls beside the proscenium are large sculptured plaques by artists Giammarchi, Berandi & Lopes.

From around 2002, the Cine Trocadero had closed, and was taken over by the Brazilian based ‘church’; Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (Iglesia Universal del Reino de Dios), who seem to specialise in taking over former cinemas around the world.
