Walked by this building recently and immediately thought it might have once been a movie palace. Now I know all about it thanks to Cinema Treasures. At least the building still stands but the ground floor (like so many of Santiago’s grand old buildings) is a travesty to the memory of a once important icon of the city. The prophecy of doom so well described in the classic movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” has been fulfilled.

Originally operated by Paramount, the Teatro Real was designed by architects Fernando Valdivieso Barros and Fernando De la Cruz.
