The Eureka, together with the Lara, were two movie houses in Puerta de Tierra, which showed black and white short features, i.e. “Aguilucho”, etc., with cowboy pictures.

Art Deco construction of Teatro Eureka, # 250 Ave. de la Constitucion, Puerta de Tierra, is said to have been funded by film entrepreneurs Teódulo Llamas and Rafael Ramos Cobian during the 40’s. It served both as a film and stage theater, and a forum for civic activities. It practically faced Iglesia San Agustin’s imposing “westwerk” facade design.

It’s fate followed that of most Santurce theaters, displaced by the influx of mall cinema mania and decay of the city’s original commercial centers.

Today it houses El Hogar del Buen Pastor’s facilities in their efforts to provide humanitarian, medical and housing services to their community.

I had forgotten about this theater. It was a Llamas theater, part of the package that Cobian took over when he leased the Llamas Circuit before joining forces with Vicfor Carrady and Jack Odell to form Commonwealth Theaters.
