The América Theatre is one of the most interesting architectural works in Havana. It first opened on March 29, 1941 and is part of a large building complex located on one of Central Havana’s main commercial streets, Galiano. The outside of the theater features simple vertical lines in the upper body in marked contrast to the horizontality of the marquee, which runs the entire length of the facade. The main lobby, which depicts a favorite element of Art Deco decorators, the sign of the zodiac, and all other interiors are decorated in modern lines of the strictest Art Deco. The theater has preserved to this day all of its original details, including the furniture.
