This is the former Apollo Theatre in Macau, near Senado Square. It dates from 1935, the first film shown was The Merry Widow on 2nd Feb 1935 and, by design, it had shops and apartments at the front and an auditorium on the ground floor at the rear. The Apollo name can still be seen on the corner of the building near the Esprit ad.
