Oh! Would someone in Madrid please write a book about Madrid cinemas including vintage photos? And, place vintage photos & photos of interiors of Madrid cinemas online? Many cities in US & Europe have such books & websites.

As to my comment above, Ken Roe has suggested to me the following:
“ I don’t think the vintage photo on their website is even Spanish. It would have the title ‘Cinderella” in Spanish, not English and two other points I notice, there is a vertical sign in the centre distance for an ‘Orpheum’ which I don’t think Madrid ever had, and the vertical sign of the theatre on the right has the word ‘Theatre’ not ‘Teatro’.”

Since theater websites change over time, I’m adding this to Comments instead of the Introduction:
A photo on the theater’s official website (click Entradas, then plano) shows the auditorium facing the large balcony and depicts a beautiful neoclassical auditorium with ornate plasterwork, lavish chandeliers and sconces.

Another photo on the official theater website (click at Proximamente) is vintage, with Walt Disney’s Cinderella, Technicolor on a theater marquee. I’m not sure if that marquee is the Gran Via.
