Teatro Urdaneta

The Teatro Urdaneta opened in 1951. Located on Avenida Norte 8 between Puerto Escondido Esquina and Puente Nuevo Esquina in the Silencio central area of downtown Caracas.

Seating is located in orchestra stalls and a small balcony and the interior is decorated in a rather plain Art Deco style.

Initially a first run cinema, in later years with the demographic changes taking place in the Central district of Caracas it went over to screening straight porn movies. This use continued until it was closed in February 2012. The Teatro Urdaneta was known as a popular meeting place for gay and bi-sexual men.

In early-2017 it was re-opened as the Cine Aquiles Nazoa with a mixed use of cinema and live theatre.
