The Juarez Theatre is right at the base of the funicular. We entered this beautiful building for a small fee of 35 pesos. We we allowed access to the main theatre and a reception room upstairs among other areas.

Upon reading other reviews, we decided to see the inside of this beautiful building. The architecture of this building is amazing and very photo worthy!

If you have a spare 20 minutes, its worth paying the pesos to go into this place and have a look around. It was for the hoi polloi, and shows it. A beautiful structure, considering when it was built.

We walked around this theater without a guide and loved to see the beauty of it. You can tell it was built a very long time ago and can appreciate the architecture.

We enjoyed the tour and love the architecture and deco! The guide was a little too much, though it was fun.
