RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The fire broke out late Thursday afternoon (29) in the Cinemateca building complex in the Vila Leopoldina neighborhood.
The building on fire is not the Cinemateca's headquarters but a building used to store collections and areas for processing film and document collections, a digital photo printing lab, and other administrative, support, and service facilities.
The Cinemateca Brasileira in São Paulo has the largest collection of "moving pictures" in Latin America and is one of the largest institutions of its kind in the world.
About 17 vehicles of the Fire Brigade moved to the Vila . . .
