Located in the Miramar district of central Havana, on Avenida 1 ra at Calle 10. The Teatro Blanquita was the largest cinema in Havana and was built in 1949. As well as operating as a cinema, it was extensively used as a live theatre. It was still operating in 1958. In 1959, after the Cuban Revolution, it was re-named Teatro Karl Marx, and continues as a live theatre and concert venue today.

The building also contained an ice skating rink.
