Escorxador Municipal Theatre

The old abattoir, designed by Francesc de Paula Morera Ga­te­ll, is the city’s most im­por­tant example of Modernist ar­chi­tec­ture. It un­derwent a number of mo­di­fi­ca­tio­ns and finally clo­sed for business in 1984. It has now been converted into a first-class cultural facility.

The Escorxador Theatre’s main auditorium has seating for 310. There is also a smaller stage for experimental and mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­na­ry arts, and a multipurpose Café-Theatre. The impressive panel presiding over the theatre lobby is the work of artist Fre­de­ric Amat.

Municipal Theatre School

The Escorxador Theatre is also the site of the Municipal Theatre School, where drama classes, acting symposia and mo­no­gra­phic courses are held.
