Cine Prado

A movie theatre located in or adjacent to the Hotel del Prado in Mexico City. Additional information, anyone? I have a postcard from the 1950s showing the hotel and the cinema.

I have details of the Cine Prado operating in 1955 and certainly through to 1971. Known as the Trans Lux Prado the architect was Carlos Obregon Santacilia it opened on 21st April 1947. It had a seating capacity for 1955 given as 830 and for 1971 it had a seating capacity of 750. The address is given as Av. Juarez 70, Mexico City, Mexico.

Danado por el terremonto de 1985 y finalmente demolido. Hoy presidio baldio. (I think this says it has been demolished in 1985.)
