even though I lived at Vila Madalena as of 16 December 1960, by 1966 I had made a friend who lived at Vila Clementino-Vila Mariana so I used to commute to the South Side of Sao Paulo every week-end and had the chance to get acquainted the movie-houses they had on that part of town. Here are some of them:
Cine Cruzeiro, Av. Domingos de Moraes, Largo Ana Rosa.
Cine Cruzeiro inauguration: 28 July 1943.
Cine Estrela on Avenida Bosque da Saude, 184.
Cine Nilo on Avenida Jabaquara, 123, inaugurated in 1955.
Cine Estrela turned into a parking lot...
Cine Estrela after being discontinued as a cinema...
what remained of Cine Nilo in 2016... the homeless people on each side is a 'bonus'...
Cine Jamour used to be here... rua Domingos de Morais, 2,833, Saúde.
Cine Sabará, Rua Domingos de Moraes, 1999 - a block apart from Santa Cruz Church.
Cine Sabará was refurbished into a Pastorinho Market, later demolished.
Rua Domingos de Moraes in the 1950s... see the Lojas Assumpção van in the foreground. They used to sponsor radio-show 'Parada de Sucessos' with Helio Aguiar on Radio Nacional Paulista.
