A brief set about a beautiful theatre built in 1921 as the Teatro Capitolio, which was later renamed in the late 1920s to Teatro Campoamor. It closed in 1965 and had a fire many years ago.
On my travels I did not get a chance to get inside the auditorium unfortunately, but was able access several rooms that faces the street.
These are not artfully done photographs, just photos that documented the state of decay inside....which was a lot! (Also, will soon switch to Flickr since these are awfully downsized and look blurry)
1. Built in 1921 as a replacement for an older theatre, this building was a combination Beaux-Arts and Neoclassical design
4. Many trees and palms are now growing on the stage. The carved pilasters to the left of the balconies retain their ornate detail.
5. Most of the floors above the stage have long since collapsed, and a good portion of the roof is gone. However, the fly system remains intact, as does the metal grille which concealed the original Victrola. The first movie with sound to be shown here was "The Jazz Singer" starring Al Jolsen.
6. Currently the theatre is home to homeless people, however there are signs in several rooms that indicated that construction workers also use the space for storage when street work and building stabilization happens.
More photos from Havana to come, thanks for taking the time to look
