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! During recess I read up a little about its founder. The acoustic is great, and Humberto Ramirez with Bobby Valentin, Roberto Roena, Marin on... More

The Tapia theater is an icon. I wish more english speaking activities were available there, especially during the high season. It is a lovely theater with great acoustics.

Closed for repairs, for various years, it was the only theater venue for plays in Old San Juan. Is a small theater in comparison to others in the world, but magnificent and full of history.
