The Alameda Theatre is one of the most important theatre spaces in Malaga. It can support in-house productions and offers a large number of shows featuring artists from Malaga and from other companies. Its programming covers the full range of works: comedies, children's shows, concerts and film screenings. The theatre is located in the Ensanche de Heredia, also known as Soho or the arts district.
However, the building housing the theatre had always been a reference in Málaga"s entertainment and cultural life. From 1907 to its destruction during the Civil War, the Pascualini Cinema has brought the greatest American productions to town. In the 1940s, a pond with boats was developed, known as "El Palacio de Cristal" (The Glass Palace). From 1956 to 1960, there was an outdoor summer film venue (Cine de Verano Terraza Alameda), which doubled as a circus venue.
The theatre"s layout today is the result of a renovation work undertaken in 1988, transforming it into a three-hall cinema and theatre. The largest room holds 579 viewers. Since 1995, it is dedicated to the greatest theatrical events every season.
In 2000, the company owning the Alameda set up a production company, Nearco Producciones. Operating from Madrid, the theatrical Mecca of Spain, Nearco has produced such successful shows as "La tentación vive arriba," "Familia," "Camino del cielo," "Nadie es perfecto," "Una pareja de miedo," "Glorious," "La ratonera," and "La cena de los idiotas." Many of them premiered in Málaga, starring the likes of Josema Yuste, Florentino Fernández, Llum Barrera, María Castro, Agustín Jiménez, Ángel Ruiz, Maribel Ripoll and Félix Álvarez, aka "Felisuco."
