This theater was inaugurated in the early 20th Century at Zanja 205 between Manrique and Campanario, initially intended for Chinese drama. In 1923, under Cuban management, it diverted from the original Oriental art to showing live vaudeville and burlesque. Its marquee advertised a “frivolous and risque” show and claimed “everything like in Paris”. The audience was almost exclusively male. The newspaper in July and August 1949 announced shows at 8:30 and 11:30 Monday through Saturday, and Sundays at 3.
