Torrevieja’s Municipal Theatre hopes to open before summer

THEATRE CLOSED: Council are still working on its reopening.

IT has been five months since its closure and there are still no immediate plans for the reopening of Torrevieja’s Municipal Theatre.

Councillor for Culture, Alejandro Blanco said: “We are managing all actions aimed at its reopening, something the whole government team wants to make happen in as short a time as possible, as long as the steps for proper operation are in accordance with legal regulations.”

Mayor Jose Manuel Dolon this week held a meeting with the architect to remedy deficiencies at the theatre, to ensure full safety can be rectified before the summer. 

In February 2015 the Generalitat Valenciana ordered Torrevieja City Council to obtain the correct certificates and opening licences, which they said had not been obtained since the theatre was inaugurated in 2006. However, the previous PP ruling council ignored the order and carried on with the cultural programme.

The new mayor closed it as investigations in to the reports and safety are analysed.


  1. If you want to open a Bar or Pub and you do not adhere to the project (Proyecto) architects drawings and requirements then, you do not get the license and would be closed. Thank god there was never an accident at the Theatre and the sooner it is deemed safe the better as we need it to be open.
