Perfect location and intimate theatre. All seats are full view seats in my opinion as the theatre is small compared to theatres in NYC. The sound was perfect and the staff was very friend. The theatre is located next to great restaurants and bars too. It was a 10 minute cab ride from my hotel in Condado area.

I took a tour with my friends and people recommend us the Boriken show held in this beautiful theatre. Amazing music and dancers that guides you through the history of Puerto Rico.

Its a great place to watch any entertainment. Its like a museum on the interior with different old parts of the building and the shows. Like films, old cameras, tapes, cloth and more.

The theater is quite old, late 19th century and it is still very much in use. It is located at the entrance of Old San... More

A month ago or so we visited the historic theatre and it was breathtaking. So much history in that old building. It's a gem. The air conditioning was really cold, but the music warmed us, jajaja!
