  • This research rebuilds the woven memory around one of the first multimodal theaters (theater, radio, cinema) country’s Art Deco, the CINE San Jorge Theater, located in the fourteenth locality of Los Martires in Bogotá city, during the period between 1938-1999. A story that begins at the end of the 19th century and goes until the end of the 20th century. Who has been in the center of the city of Bogotá, will have wondered what happens in those streets that do not usually travel and that keep an unknown history on their facades, about to disappear in the middle of urban transformations. This text realizes it, inhabited by memories, those that were shaped over time: that of the neighborhood, the park, the family, those collective memories; but also, for the chronicle and history of the development and conflicts of an emerging city, in which its protagonist, a heritage film theater, fights against forgetfulness.
