Very elegant. It was located on Neptuno street between Consulado and Industria. The architect who designed it was named Enrique Gil y Castellanos. It was open by 1924, in my mother’s youth. It had an orchestra then, where Armando Oréfiche played the piano, on a pit which rose at intermission, and it showed silent movies.

This cinema was the first in Latin America to install air conditioner system, built by the Carrier Corp. of Newark NJ.
