Teatro América



The Teatro América is one of the most important theaters in the Cuban art scene. It was inaugurated in March 1941 as one of the most faithful of Art Deco in the island exponents. Since its opening has hosted functions and performances of renowned national and international artists such as Ernesto Lecuona, Pedro Vargas, Lola Flores, Benny Moré, Sara Montiel, Libertad Lamarque, Chucho Valdes, among others.

His extraordinary facade and its excellent state of preservation captivate many students of Art Deco in the world, because its design, both interior and exterior, has unobjectionable references Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall, both of New York; and the famous Paramount movie of the city of Oakland. In 1991 it underwent an extensive restoration and was subsequently declared the Music Hall of Havana.
