Teatro Apollo

The Teatro Apollo situated in the Central district of Macau. It opened to business on 2nd February, 1935 with the English language motion picture “The Merry Widow”.

The theatre building had shops and apartments on the front part, with the 1,038-seat auditorium on the ground floor at the rear.

It showed first-run Chinese dialect and English films until its closure on 1st February 1993.

In the 1940’s and 1950’s, the theatre was also used as a venue for stage performances.

Since the old buildings on the Avenida Ameida Ribeiro have to be preserved as historical heritage, the theatre building will not be redeveloped for the time being. The stalls and the lobby of the theatre have been converted into a shop (Sprite clothing), while the balcony is enclosed as a warehouse.
