Teatro Los Angeles

The Teatro Los Angeles opened on March 9, 1949. The cinema was lavishly furnished both in the lobby and auditorium. Seating was provided in orchestra and balcony levels. On each of the splay-walls beside the proscenium were large line drawing murals depicting a naked female figure with a movie camera.

The “Los Angeles” as I used to call it during my teen years in the late 50’s and early 60’s was a modern cinema in a middle class neighborhood in Havana. It was a first run theatre though playing most of the films, American mostly, that played on first run theaters in the city. It was open until recently since I check Havana websites for movie schedules in the city and it has been listed up to then. There are some very nice exterior pictures of this cinema on flicker.com.

Hi Raf, do you happen to remember what was the name of the cinema Errol Flynn co-owned in Havana?

It wasn’t Los Angeles. The exact address of this theater was Juan Delgado 59 between Lacret and Luis Estévez streets in Santos Suárez. It is incorrectly positioned in El Cerro district in the street map. I think this was probably the last movie theater opened in the district of Santos Suárez before December 31, 1958.

Tobias52, This is the closest I’ve been able to get: Film star with a cause By John Paul Rathbone A recently rediscovered film about Fidel Castro is a rare chronicle of a defining moment in world history as well as Errol Flynn’s near-redemption. The revolution of the late 1950s brought to an end the louche world that Flynn celebrated – and, eventually, criticised. Indeed, by 1958 the star had become infatuated with the romance of Fidel Castro and his bearded revolutionaries, and was sufficiently moved to make a 50-minute documentary of the moment. Recently rediscovered in the Rank laboratory where it lay unwatched for almost five decades, Cuban Story has just been re-released in the UK. Of the more than 50 films that Flynn made, Cuban Story is not among the best. Presented by the star, and produced by Victor Pahlen, a drinking companion who owned a local film business called Fenix Productions, this phoenix rising from the ashes of Flynn’s career is, nonetheless, a rare chronicle of a defining moment in world history, as well as a Hollywood star’s near-redemption.
