Pictured in this 1928 trade ad:
Located on the corner of Neptuno and Consulado Streets and had 1500 seats.
According to an article in Motion Picture News which includes some interior photos this cinema opened in 1928 and was atmospheric in design.The architect is listed as Enrique Gil Y Castellanos.
Very elegant. By 1924 it was open, in my mother’s youth. It had an orchestra then, on a pit which rose at intermission, and it showed silent movies.
