More than a million people a year visit El Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore inside the former Teatro Gran Splendid in Recoleta, Buenos Aires.

The former theatre and cinema, originally opened in 1919, was converted in 2000 with most of its ornate interiors left intact, including ceiling frescoes, sculptures and theatre boxes that now double as cosy reading nooks.
