Teatro Alcazar


Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

A venue for Spanish-language films, I believe this theater was once part of the old Wometco Commonwealth chain.

It was a very nice theater, one of the Commnweath venues Wometco took over. It played Spanish and English movies. In the late 60’s sometimes played movies day and date with San Juan.

My mother brought me to the Alcazar to see THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. I also saw a cute spanish film titled ADIOS CIGUENA ADIOS (Goodbye Stork, Goodbye) about a pregnant pre-teen. I remember they also showed (but did not get to attend)Pam Grier’s COFFY and Carlos Saura’s CRIA CUERVOS. Someone please create pages for TEATRO CAGUAS (no longer in existence – now a Blockbuster video store last time i looked), CINE LIDO (no longer in existence – now Teatro Arcelay for stage shows, etc.) & the legendary CINE REAL (no longer there at all – just a gutted skeleton, it was the grindhouse of my youth!). Sweet memories! Oh, how i miss them…

Davsot, thank you for the pic. I got to go to PR on February 2011 & saw it. Amazing that the front of the building (& the ALCAZAR letters) are still somewhat intact. Went to see my family. Imagine my surprise when, while speaking to my ailing father – who had a brief radio career in NY during the 50s – that he had played master of ceremonies for a Tito Rodriguez show there and rented a Rock Hudson film to be showed the same night!
