Mexico City probably had more jumbo cinemas than any other metropolis in the world. Opening in the midst of the Depression on 5th May 1937 with “Ayudame a vivir y El cazador blanco”(Help Me To Live, I’m A White Hunter), the modernistic Cine Encanto had 4,000 seats, with 2,000 on the ground floor and the rest in two steep balconies.
It suffered severe damage in an earthquake in 1957 and was demolished. Today the site houses a magazine & newspaper distribution centre which was built in the 1980’s.
