This building has an impressive frontage with a striking interior dating back to 1903. There are lots of velvet and guilt decorations: worth a look as it gives an interesting insight on how the elite used to live.

The building is a beauty and is worth visiting. However, they charge 35 pésos for the entrance fee and an additional 30 pésos for the right to take pictures. In normal circumstances, I don't mind these fees, but in this case, we are given only...More

Beautiful theater. But the best part was the guide. Gave a great explanation and told us about the history of Mexico. Wish it would be available in English also

We have sat on the outside steps of this theatre several times, to rest and watch people go by (busy place) and to sip hot chocolate or coffee and warm up in the morning sun. Right next to El Jardín, so a great central spot....More

Worth the couple bucks to go inside. This is the most beautiful theatre in Mexico. We only wish we could have seen a performance there!

A joy to be seen and unlike so many of the great classic theatres it has not been the victim of 'refurbishing/modernization ' . It has enjoyed just simple maintenance and looks great. The photographs of its building and earlier years not to be missed

Worth a quick visit, maybe takes 30 minutes. As with many sites, not well curated. You basically walk around. The building is beautiful. Lit up at night, it's stunning.

When we were there a couple weeks ago one could buy tickets throughout the day (for the evening's performance) when the theater was open for the "self guided tours." Seems like the theater was closed one day during the week... More
