Centro Asturiano (Official)
Functions: Cultural Center
Built as a full-service cultural center for the fractious, large Cuban comunity of Tampa in the early part of the century. It had a large ballroom, restaurant, meeting rooms and other amenities. 1914 is listed as completion year and the architects were Bonfoey & (M. Leo) Elliot. There were several large cultural clubs of the era and several of these grand buildings survive.Two, at least, including this one showed movies often in it’s large theater. I have to expect that most showings were in Spanish.
The building was landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings in 1974.
