Reopened in the mid-1990s after years of disuse, the Teatro Lara stands on a steep narrow lane in Malasaña. It's a marvelous example of a 19th-century theater, and its evocatively traditional architecture has remained largely unchanged since refurbishment. Family plays and musicals such as Annie and Blood Brothers are generally shown here. The box office is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11:30am to 1pm and 5pm till the start of the show.
