I went here for a movie soundtrack concert that was absolutely amazing. It was an instrumental concert, but they had several people dressed up as characters from the movies being musically represented, which was amazing. The venue itself is pretty and nice, and pretty accessible.

The best place to see a concert, watch a show, go to see a play, etc. It has parking and if it gets full then there is parking nearby. Best place to pass the weekend if you like the arts.

It's a beautiful venue with modern accommodations and technically up to date facilities. The Plaza in front is a beauty with a very modern fountain, very spacious open space populated with sculptures of women in different costumes, which become interesting conversation pieces...

I don't know why they have a photo of the Museo de Arte of San Juan here as the main photo. That's a huge error. Centro de Bellas Artes is a building that houses 3 theaters for concerts, plays, opera, ballet, etc. there is another building devoted entirely to the symphonic orchestra which also is lovely. There is always something... More

I go to the theater, often to see local shows, and plays, which are excellent, always. However, there this time I am very excited about the coming Festival Casals, which starts on Feb. 27 up to March 15. This year, they have invited violinist, Victoria Mullova, and Josua Bell. Singing group Tenet, singing baroque music; chello player Amit Peled; pianist... More

I stumbled on this theater complex that is set back from the road and not well marked. The box office is all the way to the back - and there doesn't seem to be much advance promotion of events. I stumbled on a night when the symphony was playing so got tickets and had a great night of classical music... More
