COOL CUBAN COMBO!
January 22, 1942, the newly renovated Admiral Theater located in West Seattle debuted, boasting unique filmic innovations and an incredible art deco, nautical appearance, unlike anything Seattle had ever seen.

Built by the same architect that created the Hollywood Pantages, the theater showcased unique murals and etched seahorse glass chandeliers.   The theater cost over $200,000 and charged outrageous admissions; adults 35 cents and children, a whopping 11 cents.

The film they showed was Weekend in Havana, a zany musical starring Caesar Romero, Alice Fey and Carmen Miranda.   Well hang on to your maracas.  Sunday, April 25th, the Admiral Theater will once again show, Weekend in Havana along with a concert by Charanga Danzon, an ensemble of Cuban dance music merging African and European influences, highlighting flute and violin.  

Danzon is the national dance style of Cuba. Charanga Danzon, founded in 2008 by violinist and educator Irene Mitri,is Seattle's unique Cuban music ensemble. This fluid ensemble of superb musicians finds its basis honoring the tradition of strings in Cuban music, with a repertoire including charanga, son/danzon, cha-cha-cha, classical, and jazz.

The concert starts at 6 PM followed by the screening of Weekend in Havana at 7:30 pm.
