The Cinelandia square is one of the most important areas of Rio. It is said that in the 1930s it was as much a hub of activity as the Times Square in New York. Today it is an area surrounded by several important historical buildings like The National Library, The City Chamber - Pedro Ernesto Palacy, Municipal Theatre and Museum of Fine Arts. The area was once lined with several buildings that housed cinema theatres, though most of these are now closed, they are the reason this square gets the name Cinelandia (Cinema Land). The Cine Odeon is the only active theatre that has been around since the 1930s. The area is very lively with numerous bars and resaurants worth visitng. Several walking tours are conducted by private operators for those who wish to explore the neighbourhood and the history and culture of the people.
