The Perdoma Cinema Room was inaugurated on September 25, 1965. At that time it revolutionized the La Perdoma neighborhood, by having this important recreational-cultural project that gave many residents of this urban nucleus the opportunity to access in a comfortable and close way to the cinema and to view the diverse and varied films that were projected. The inauguration was made with the film by Mario Moreno Cantinflas, ‘El Extra’ and ‘Duelo de Sol’. In the 70s of the last century, an important cultural flow took place around this room. Cinema weeks were scheduled with screenings of special films that had a significant influx of audiences. Also, during the neighborhood festivals, at that time, important cultural days were programmed, adding to the projection of films, music and theater. Thus, the room witnessed talks, festivals, concerts, rallies, conferences, meetings, and multiple experiences, among other things.
This space closed its doors at the end of the 80s, and later, in 1997, the City Council of La Orotava acquired it to continue developing various cultural and social activities in the neighborhood. Thus, this movie theater has been an important meeting point and cultural exchange since the sixties of the last century, hosting a multitude of events, as well as being used as a rehearsal venue.
