It would be interesting to know if the Goya name is a tribute to Francesco Goya, the famed Spanish painter and printmaker. He’s best known for his paintings “The Massacre of the Innocents,” and the nightmarish “Saturn Devouring His Children,” a painting which I first saw in an art book when about 7. It so frightened me that I memorized what was on the pages immediately before and after, so I would not accidently turn to the image. Goya’s series of etchings, “The Caprices” are also famous. Some are as, or nearly, disturbing as “Saturn.” Any information as to whether the theatre/cinema was named after this artist would be appreciated.
