    Teatro Calderon: Theater

    by Nathalie_B Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As I got picked up from the airport Ursula said: "It's good you're here, I have a surprise for you, for tomorrow. It's a show and they are from Israel"
    It was hard not to guess. Mayumana! It looked like my cheap flight ticket wasn't the only miracle that happened to me that day. I get to see the famous Mayumana. And I get to see it in Madrid.

    We arrived to Plaza de Jacinto Benavente where I saw another architectural masterpiece - Teatro Calderon. It was my second day in Madrid, every street and every building seemed to be the most beautiful things in the world and I couldn't stop enjoying it.
    As we entered the theater I tried to take as many pictures as possible, but the lights weren't good enough. However, the interior is very impressive, especially the ceiling.

    If you happen to go to the Calderon don't worry if your seats are somewhere up in the balcony. The theater isn't that big and you'll see the stage perfectly no matter where you sit.

    Slightly more than a year later I was making my way from Plaza Mayor to Sol and came across Teatro Calderon again. The building is still impressive and stands out, but the new name made me laugh. No longer it is called Calderon, it is now Teatro Haagen Dazs. What's next? Puerta del Milka?

    Cine Callao

    by keeweechic Written Sep 21, 2009

    The Cine Callo is found on the Gran Via along with other wonderful architecture along this strip. It was built in a Classical style between the years 1925 to 1927. Originally designed as a twin theatre. During the 1950’s/1960’s it was redesigned in more of an Art Deco style which was in keeping with that era. The cinema is open from Monday to Sunday 4.00pm – 10.30pm.

    Theatre: Teatro Real Cinema

    by keeweechic Written Sep 25, 2009

    The Teatro Real Cinema or Royal Cinema Theatre, was once a cinema which held 1,000 seats and 64 private boxes. In 1924 it also housed a Wurlitzer theatre organ which played during screening. During the Spanish Civil Wall a bomb caused damage but it was repaired and reopened in 1943. There have been other renovations over the years and today the Cinema has hosted shows such as comedies, thrillers and dramas.
