Torrevieja´s municipal theatre is set to reopen in June

Torrevieja´s municipal theatre is set to reopen in June, if all goes to plan, once the work to legalise the building has been completed.

The theatre was closed in September as if didn´t have the necessary license to operate, nor did it meet the minimum safety requirements, despite being allowed to risk the safety of thousands of people allowed to use the facility when the previous government ignored the rules on safety and licensing.

Now, according to the current councillor for culture Alejandro Blanco, once the architect has signed off the necessary work, the theatre will be able to open legally and safely, but not without costing the tax payer another 200,000 euro.

The theatre originally cost 9 million euro to build, 3.4 million more than was budgeted.
