Located in the Laguna Gardens strip mall, this theater opened with a lot of fanfare in 1971. It’s first movie was “The Andromeda Strain”. It boasted that it was the most up to date, modern theater in the island. Its main screen had a Todd-AO-150 system. This theater became THE place to see many epic films. It originally seated 1,000, then became a duplex, then more small screens were added.
Somewhere in early 1980’s the theater started to gain a reputation for attracting an unruly crowd. Like in the UA owned Paramount, the administration cared very little about the comfort of people who wanted to have a civilized, orderly experience while attending a movie. So many people started avoiding the Cinema 150.
In the late 1990’s, Caribbean Cinemas bought all UA theaters in Puerto Rico. They tried at apply its good standards to the Cinema 150, but it was too late. People would rather go to the nearby Plaza Carolina theaters and the Cinema 150 was closed in late-2002.
