Cine Metro was actually built in 1936. It was designed by architects Jorge Arteaga Isaza and Sergio Larrain Garcia-Moreno. I’ve been unable to discover if Larrain was the father of the noted Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain, born at Santiago in 1931, but I suspect that he was.

There is a brief exterior clip of a Cine Metro in Santiago early on in the Fitzpatrick Travelogue “Chile, Land of Charm” from MGM.

This is available to view on the TCM website, but is dated 1937. It seems to match the description above, could the opening date have been earlier?
