This Monday Cinemex announced the closure of its branch at the National Center for the Arts (CNA) .
"Thank you for making Cinemex CNA your favorite cinema for so many years," the company said through a banner posted on its site and in the cinema facilities.
The announcement aroused the nostalgia of social network users, who soon regretted that this branch was going out of operations, as well as sharing anecdotes on the spot.
Cinemex had been operating the complex for nine years, but the history of this cinema is older; the complex is 27 years old.
The architectural project was carried out by the Sordo Madaleno group, the same group behind Comercial Santa Fe, Antara Polanco, Plaza Satélite and Plaza Universidad.
Its inauguration was in 1995 as part of the opening of the CNA and was in charge of the actress Salma Hayek and the then president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León. The company that managed this space for the seventh art at that time was Cinemark.
It was the first complex of the multiplex type, that is, there were several movie theaters with multiple screens within a single place.
In 1999 the cinema was involved in the controversy for showing the film “La Ley de Herodes”, in which the PRI government was criticized.
It should be remembered that the land on which the cinema is located is owned by the CNA, in 2012 Cinemark had entered into a 10-year lease, which expired this year.
In 2013, Cinemark sold all its complexes to Cinemex, which is how this chain took control of the CNA branch.
