The huge El Cines Teatro Orfeon opened on 30th June 1938. Originally proposed to have a seating capacity of 6,000, it was listed as having 4,628 seats in 1945.
In late-1947 it was closed for a re-modelling to the plans of American architect John Eberson & Drew Eberson, and it re-opened on 12th February 1948 with 3,165 seats. After closing as a full time cinema it stood empty for many years falling into a state of decay and delapidation.
In 1996 it was purchased by production company OCESA Presents and assisted by the Disney Corporation it was given a ‘state of the arts’ full restoration and is now home to large scale stage productions such as Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” which opened to previews on 28th April 1997, having a first night performance on 8th May 1997 and closing on 28th April 1998.
