Cine Tonalá, the Mexican groundbreaking arthouse theater and gastropub, has announced the opening of a fourth location in the Mexican city of Querétaro in partnership with the Hércules brewery. The new theater, named Cine Tonalá Hércules Querétaro, will open on December 8 with the local theatrical release of Alfonso Cuarón’s acclaimed Roma.
A brainchild of interior designers and restauranteurs Marcela Lugo and Arturo Dib with cultural promoter Juan Pablo Bastarrachea, Cine Tonalá was launched with the mission to promote Mexican cinema and local talent. It opened its doors at Tonalá 261 in the cosmopolitan Roma Sur neighborhood. A couple of years later, Cine Tonalá opened its second location in the central neighborhood of La Merced at the Colombian capital, under the direction of Salomón Simhon, keeping the essence of the original location. In 2016, Cine Tonalá Tijuana opened its door and has become an important cultural landmark in Mexico’s northern city.
Cine Tonalá Hércules Querétaro will be located in an old textile hacienda which now hosts a artisanal brewery, and will have an 85-seat theater equipped with 4K Dolby Atmos, with a restaurant and a bar.
