Cancun, Q.R. — The new Theater of the City of Cancun will be finished ahead of schedule. Governor Mara Lezama announced that the more than 100-million-peso project will be inaugurated “soon”.
“I want to share that we are close to finishing the construction of this incredible theater that the people of Cancun asked for and that will become a benchmark for the culture of Cancun and all of Quintana Roo,” Governor Lezama announced.
The theater, which is being built in SM 20, was scheduled for opening toward the end of the year. It was rebuilt on land where the previous unfinished theater sat. In March, Lezama said the previous building was damaged and defective, so the city opted for a completely new structure.
Over 64 million peso of its cost was covered through the Urban Improvement Program (PMU). Lezama said the other 40 million she managed when she was mayor of Cancun.
During a recent tour of the building, Lezama was accompanied by Cancun Mayor Ana Patricia Peralta de la Peña and the Secretary of Sustainable Urban Territorial Development (SEDETUS) Armando Lara De Nigris.
The completed theater will offer a state-of-the-art stage, equipment, seating and acoustics. Lezama explained that for artists, technicians and collaborators, it is equipped with dressing rooms, a rehearsal room, offices, warehouses, a technical room and first aid station.
