Cineteatro Sao Luiz, Fortaleza

#9 of 66 in Nightlife in State of Ceara
Theater · Concert / Show
While you can still see the original movie theater signage, unfortunately Cineteatro Sao Luiz is no longer a working cinema. It is, however, an important part of Fortaleza’s cultural legacy and locals recall its heyday fondly. The interior is richly decorated and considered a work of art in itself; the entrance hall and staircase are made of Carrera marble and the large crystal chandeliers were imported from Czechoslovakia. Since its demise, it has occasionally played host to special screenings and events.

  • A cinema found in the heart of the city full of history and with a beautiful architecture. Good place located in the Praça José de Alencar.  more »
  • The old cinema is closed. The architecture is not that interesting even for a visit. It is part of the old and degraded city center  more »
  • The São Luís Cine Theater has been a symbol of resistance throughout history because it survived among several other demolished cine buildings in the city. Today the São Luís Cine Theater is historical heritage that hosts shows and musicals among other artistic performances.
