Inaugurated in 1953, this popular theater has been home to the most outstanding spectacles, dramas, tragedies, comedies and entertainment shows in Mexico City. Its first owner, Mr. José María Dávila, asked Diego Rivera to create a unique mural for the theater's façade. Thus, Rivera recreated his own vision of the history of theater in Mexico and the theater of Mexican history, unifying all his ideas with a local symbol of entertainment beyond social classes: Mexican comedian Mario Moreno "Cantinflas".
An endless list of the most talented Mexican stars, directors, producers, dancers, choreographers and designers have performed in this theater's plays, musicals, concerts and shows.
