Teatro Nan King

The Teatro Nan King was a large neighbourhood cinema, located on Rua de Cinco de Outubro at Rua do Visconde Paco de Arcos.

It was opened in the 1930’s on the first floor of the building, with a meat, fish and vegetable market on the ground floor. The Teatro Nan King closed in the early-1950’s.

It stood empty for a few years, and was converted into a workers leisure hall. Second-run films were screened. Demolished in the 1990’s, in March 2010, the site is still an empty plot of land, with the outline of the building still marking adjacent buildings.
