One of Madrid's few remaining 19th-century theaters, it's popularly known as La Bombonera (the chocolate box) due to its small size and ornate art-nouveau decor. It seats 580 spectators and presents a program featuring contemporary drama, musicals, and comedies. It's named after its founder, Cándido Lara. You'll find it incorporated into an attractive early 20th-century residential listed building close to Gran Vía. Advance ticket sales: at the box office or by telephone.
