It was a genuine architectural jewel indeed!
it was my favorite movie theater and spent many sundays there when i was a kid. the pictures bring a lot of memories.
I always thought that it was going to be relocated somewhere else
but that never happen.
but i still would like to know where all the sculptures of dragons, nymphs and Budhas go?

What a screen. It looks like 70mm, it must have been some place. Whoever decided to tear this down should have been shot.

Absolutely magnificent! So sad that this unique movie palace was demolished in such recent times.

It was a genuine architectural jewel in northern Mexico. Its ornamentation was influenced by Chinese and Art Deco elements, It had unique sculptures of dragons, nymphs and Budhas and its curtains of red silk, the red carpet and seats gave it a touch of luxury. It is a shame that it was demolished in the edification of the Macroplaza of Monterrey in 1982. Photographer Fausto Tovar took a series of pictures that bring us one of the last few memories of this majestic thater.
