Just came back from San Juan, the Fine Arts is a shell, they even took the roof out to make it higher and accommodate stadium seating in the new auditoriums. It’s a major job and will probably take a while.

Caribbean Cinemas closed the Fine Arts and is curremtly renovating it. It will have six screens and will be like the new Fina Arts Cafe in Hato Rey.

Sept. 12, 2008 post by ken, the link is about an Imax theater being built in San juan. I emailed Imax Corp. and they responded there were no plans for an Imax in SJ. Anyway, Imax would not compete with Fine Arts, it is a big screen format for certain films. lately used for special prints of mainstream movies including 3D versions. The Fine Arts building is owned by Caribbean Cinemas. It was bought by Caribbean’s president, Victor Carrady and 2 former VPs of Commonwealth Theaters. One of them passed away and don’t know if the estate is still a partner or sold the shares to Caribbean. I don’t know the whereabouts of the other partner. I think he retired to Florida.

I’ve heard there are differences between the Caribbean Cinemas people and the owner of the building and there’s now a big probability that the Fine Arts in Miramar will close down. Let’s hope they do reach an agreement.

Does anyone knows if the new Fine Arts will have a Digital Screen like Cine en Ballajá did?

Caribbean Cinemas isnt closing the Miramar Fine Arts. For them, that cinema its a little gold mine and have its own clients that always go there. They have been planning the renovation for a long time but since this is the only fine arts cinema, they cant close it for the renovation period. So they decide to make this new cinema, since they have to renovate the old one and second to have a ‘back-up’ cinema since plaza las americas is always full of clients (since the Cinevista closed its doors). Everyone told me that they will not close the Miramar Fine Arts…but who knows!

Caribbean Cinemas is opening a new Fine Arts Cinema in Hato Rey. It will feature 6 screens, stadium seating and will serve wine ect. The Fine Arts in Miramar will close and will be remodeled.
Let’s hope this is true since most of the time when theaters are closed down to be “remodeled” they are never re-opened.

The Fine Arts is famous for putting posters and showing trailers for movies they eventually never show. Anyway, I do hope thet show “The Passenger”

I am athrill to learn that Antonioni’s The Passenger will soon be playing at Cine Fine Arts; I think this movie is a superlative, spellbinding, transcendent, etc., must-see.

I was involved in the tripling of this cinema. The building was originally built as a radio studio. Cinema one still has the sound proofing baffles on the side walls and was sized to handle bands and orchestras. Cinema #2 was craved out of two smaller radio studios and Cinema #3 was originally the private screening cinema for Caribbean Cinemas who operate the Fine Arts in conjunction with a partner. There are future plans to add two more screens on the second floor.
