Sonora Entertainment Group, operator of three Hispanic cinemas, had announced a forthcoming name change for this venue from Cinema Latino to Snoroa Cinemas in March of 2020. Three days later, the concept was stopped when Sonora Entertainment suspended all of its programming following movies as of March 16, 2020 at its venues, the Sonora Cinemas Phoenix (formerly Cinema Latino de Phoenix), the Sonora Cinemas Aurora, Colorado (formerly Cinema Latino), and here at the Cinema Latino.

The name change didn’t transpire and Sonora filed for voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection on August 6, 2020. The chain dissolved and the March 16, 2020 closure became permanent.
