A 1,300-Seat Cinema Is Opened for the People of Colombia's Capital

The Mogador Theatre

The new, modern, deluxe Mogador Theatre in Bogota, Colombia, opened' last September, a 1,300-seat addition to the entertainment facilities of the republids capital and first city. The theatre is owned and operated by Miguel Jordan.

Facade of the new theatre utilizes a modest upright name sign, a shelf-like marquee with room for a long single line of changeable letters, and lots of glass. The entrance area is closed by six pairs (three sets of pairs) of four-paned doors, and above the marquee the facade is dominated by massive arrangement of windows.

The auditorium has a main floor and a balcony, with a combined seating capacity of approximately 1,300. Archii tecturally, the auditorium is very plain, with light colored, tightly fiuted wall panels relieving the evenness of otherwise fiat areas. The proscenium hangings and stage curtains add the requisite touch of color.

The projection booth is a triple installation, with Brenkert projectors and arclighting and an RCA sound system the main items of equipment.
