Teatro Muñoz Seca, Madrid of course!

Now this was a find, to tell you the truth, never been in it, and passing by several times was not really interested in seeing it…. However, as this time we did a lot of walking to show my young men sons, the heritage of Madrid and Spain we did stop by in several places that show a bit more of the fabric of the city of Madrid!

This is the case of the Teatro Muñoz Seca theater. Hope you enjoy and perhaps one day do a program here , it is a nice quant area of Madrid not far from the Puerta del Sol.

The Teatro Muñoz Seca theater or Pedro Muñoz Seca theater is an old theater hall, located in Plaza del Carmen, 1 that in 1930 took the name of that Spanish playwright. In the same lot there was a popular Chantecler Hall, which between 1922 and 1930 was called El Dorado Hall.

The Chantecler Hall , was acquired in 1919 by Consuelo Portela aka “La Chelito”, at that time maximum diva of erotic. On December 15, 1922, a new neighborhood building with a theater on the ground floor chamfer was opened on the same site, with the name of El Dorado (namesake of the Eldorado summer theater that was next to the Paseo del Prado and was caught fire in 1903). Finally, in 1930 ,it took the name of playwright Pedro Muñoz Seca.
