Centennial concert coffee of Barcelona
The Molino Theatre is the most emblematic cafe-theatre of the Paralelo of Barcelona. Its beginnings date back to the second decade of the 20th century, perhaps because of the 1929 International Exhibition. Remodelled by the architect Joan Alemany who designed the facade that we have known to this day. The first name it had was Petit Moulin Rouge, but since Franco’s dictatorship prohibited any language other than Castilian, it was changed to El Molino, also eliminating the "red" colour associated with the communists.
In the first decade of 21st century a group of seventeen companies invested fifteen million euros to expand, renovate and modernise the premises, introducing new technologies and electronic music.
