Why locals love it

This was the manor house of the Samaniego Family, built between 1908 to 1910 by the Italian Giacomo Radiconccini. In 1935 was transformed into a theater and it was very popular until it was abandoned in 1999 and converted into an Evangelist church. This was one of the most popular theaters and cinemas in town.

Why you should visit it

In 2007 the Municipality of Quito and the Institute of Cultural Heritage decided to recuperate the theater and all the building was totally restored. Now you can see its reborn with excellent concerts and plays that are changing the scene of La Tola neighborhood.
