AmaZing place . Nice Stuffs The place has a good location and nice space. Also the Teatro de la Ciudad supports lgbt performances.
Gorgeous architecture in what used to be the equivalent of the house of senate. It is now a theatre. Old timey feel with the ushers, and usually always clean and nice. Best seats are on first balcony which has the best view in the entire house. The main floor is not as great since the slope toward the stage is too little and a tall person in front will block your view.
