New Cancun cultural theatre nearing 70 percent complete

Cancun, Q.R. — More than 100 million peso is being invested into the transformation of the Cancun Cultural Theater. Governor Mara Lezama reported on the advancement being made, which she says, is nearing 70 percent complete.

Lezama said that when she was the mayor of Cancun, she negotiated the resources for the transformation of the theatre with the Government of Mexico.

She said that the new building required the total demolition of the previous building, which was unfinished, damaged and of defective construction. Now, it has been rebuilt new with a façade of the Cultural Center to do justice to the theater.

“One of the most important resources around the Urban Improvement Plan has been allocated here to this new theater in the city of Cancun. Today, we are building a high-level space, a place where people can enjoy entertainment in the best environment,” she said.

Once complete, Lezama says the new building will offer space for stage events, an auditorium with a capacity for more than 650 spectators and an alternative forum or “black box” of a multipurpose nature.

The main lobby forms an extension of the access plaza and the front street which will allow the extension of the lobby toward outdoor areas and independent access to the Cultural Center.
