Kissing each other inside the mouth of the giant jaguar mouth front door of Jaguar's Temple
Jaguars Nightclub was Tarzan’s. Changed in 2000. Also interesting to me: before that it was a movie theater that collapsed in 1984.

Teatro Arena has sure come a long way.
(1980’s - 2021).
The first film I watched in my life was Grease, (shown in early 1980’s) which made me look forward to summer. That feeling was short lived after watching Jaws. (Mr. Marciano Salazar Sr. collected my 50 cents vintage ticket at the gate).
I think it might have also been the venue for beauty pageants and variety shows. (I think that I remember Delcie Forman winning her title there once but I was in my single digits so memory is foggy...
Years later, they added arcades in the lobby and I was introduced to Pac-Man & Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Centipede and others.
One magical summer it was transformed to the first Saturday night dance club I attended. It was simpler times back then and we always found creative ways to have fun and make wonderful lifelong memories.
7th Heaven was envisioned and produced by DJ Patty Arceo & Johnny Lizama Jr. After closing for years, it re-emerged as “Tarzan’s night club” and that’s when I last saw it (1997). Today it has morphed into a colorful Jaguar’s Club.
I remember seeing a scary movie there, Motel Hell, I think. Scarred for life! Just kidding, it was a fun place to hang out, just don't think we cared about ratings back then.
The kissing theatre when the lights went off. The boy friends jump the chairs sometimes when there was problem with the movie and lights. Cameron the boy friends were seen jumping on the chairs love my Home. Thanks Don Fido.
