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.
