If you skip forward 40 minutes into this video you can see a series of Havana cinemas in the 1950’s including the Riviera.

It was already operating in 1946. The stairs looked so much higher when I was a child! I remember my cousin took me to see a Cantinflas movie there, perhaps “Soy un prófugo”, and I later saw “The Best of Everything” with Hope Lange and Stephen Boyd in 1959. The Carmelo restaurant next door to the east at 505 served a delicious “toasted ice cream” (baked Alaska). The theater is erroneously positioned on the street map in El Cerro, it was on 23 Street between G and H in Vedado.
