Cinema Rex opened in 1938. It was located between Consulado and Industria streets. It showed short-length films, newsreels, Cuban “América”, North-American Warner-Pathé, Spanish “No-Do”, a Walt Disney cartoon, and a documentary or a comedy skit. A well-mannered older formal usher at the lobby before the navy blue velvet drapes usually announced, “A short while standing” to the new arriving moviegoers who would wait for the next showing. I saw “The movie pest” there and many a sprightly Donald Duck cartoon.
