A Brief Look into the Past

Cine El Rey featured mostly Spanish-language films up until its closing in 1988. Located in the heart of McAllen's oldest region, this little corner of comfort and culture would not stay closed for long. Cine El Rey sprung to life once again and became the ultimate venue for local entertainment when local citizens revived the city’s downtown 17th Street entertainment district.

The theatre takes you on an exhilarating journey to the past with its charming and antique atmosphere. It hosts a number of concerts, film festivals, comedy shows and other special events. Visit the Cine El Rey Facebook page to check out the latest events and news.
