Does anyone have any old pictures of the ambassador?

I saw Benji, Carrie, Freaky Friday at this theatre. I have such beautiful memories of it and the times spent there. That was when life felt like it could go on FOREVER!

I was in San Juan in October and saw the Ambassador from the outside and it looked great. The marquee was announcimg the salsa star Gilberto Santa Rosa. Has anyone of the above contributors been inside? In the earlyit 60’s Cobian/Commonwealth renpvated it and opened as the “New” Ambassador with a George Chakiris movie == The Empire of the Sun or something like that == with I believe, Yul Brynner and Christopher Plummer co-starring. Happy New Year, Andres.

The Ambassador actually holds 500 people, 300 in its first level and another 200 in the second level. “¿Quién mató a Héctor Lavoe?” (Who killed Hector Lavoe?), a play about the assasination of the legendary Puerto Rican Salsero, will be the first to play in the newly restored Ambassador.

The Ambassador is open once again as a live theater venue.

It’s on Ponce De Leon Avenue near the Autoridad de Energia building…close to where the old Santurce Woolworth’s used to be. Owner Luis Vigoreaux recently gave a press conference in which he showed the renovated Ambassador theater to the local news media.
In that conference he unveiled an old photo of the Ambassador theater when it was still called “The Venus”.

The Ambassador is currently being renovated and will be a part of the government’s efforts to create a theater row on Ponce De Leon Avenue.
