The Cine Nacional opened on 11th August 1949. It had a narrow entrance, which was dwarfed by a huge vertical name sign. Through the entrance there was a covered arcade, which led to the auditorium. Inside the auditorium, there was seating provided in orchestra and balcony levels. The side-walls had slender columns which seemed to support the ceiling (but didn’t), and in the spaces between the columns sat slender pyramid shaped sculptures, which were backlit.

In the late-1970’s, the Cine Nacional was divided into a 3-screen cinema. The building stands today, but its current usage is unknown.

I visted a Mexican theatre once in a little town below Laredo,Texas and to be fair to our Mexican friends your theatres that saw in that town looked just as bad as the one or two downtown theatres in Laredo. This was in 1975.
