Wild. This was my family’s cinema. I’ll try to dig out some photos…
This movie theater was located at Calzada del Cerro 1202 and Infanta, and stood high on the northwest corner of Esquina de Tejas (the corner of clay roof tiles). It had a lone palm tree in front, and was modest and very old. It had been named after Italian actor of silent movies in the ‘20’s Rodolfo Valentino. I was never inside, but it showed “Tania la bella salvaje”, a 1948 Mexican movie with Rosa Carmina. There was a cock-fight ring behind it. I believe it was torn down in the ‘80’s to make way for two 21- and 22-story apartment buildings.
