Teatro Lux

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located not far from the Paradise and New Victoria theaters in the old downtown of the Río Piedras section of San Juan, the Teatro Lux ended up as an X-rated theater before closing and being torn down to make way for a parking lot.

I distinctly remember what an eyesore this theater was. The whole facade was grayish/light blue, and the non-functional marquee was simply painted over in that color.

I had completely forgotten about the Lux. Never went there. I don’t even remember if it was owned by Commonwealth or Llamas.

I don’t think it was ours (Commonwealth) because the first thing I did every morning was to check the movie ads, including the cartelera of the neighborhood houses, to make sure there were no mistakes and I don’t remember the Lux in the cartelera. So it must have been Llamas.

Sure could use an address or crossroad, more info, and photos.

Bob: The best location I can describe is Ponce de Leon Avenue, between Robles and Arzuaga streets, in Ri­o Piedras. If you drove southbound on Ponce de Leon, the theater was on your left.

[Reposting] I don’t recall the Lux ever being listed among the Wometco Commonwealth theaters, and I have no clue if it was owned by Llamas. This one venue’s history might remain an obscure one.

I’m under the impression the Lux burned down and the remaining structure was afterwards demolished.
