An entry in MY Travel Guide gives the following information about the theatre:
“Located in the center of the city, this theater was constructed between 1933 and 1937, under the direction of the architect Antonino Russo. Many years ago it was a very active movie theater. Right now it is only used for concerts or cultural events from time to time. There is a foyer and an anteroom that leads to the seats, the stage and the dressing rooms. The interior of this construction in brick, iron, and wood, is very simple. The galleries on the central section of its facade are framed by arches in the ground floor and by architrave over Doric columns at the top part.”
