Its a great place to watch any entertainment. Its like a museum on the interior with different old parts of the building and the shows. Like films, old cameras, tapes, cloth and more.

During recess I read up a little about its founder. The acoustic is great, and Humberto Ramirez with Bobby Valentin, Roberto Roena, Marin on... More
