 Echegaray Theatre

It is managed by the Cervantes Theatre and owned by Malaga City Council. The Echegaray Theatre is another of the city’s landmark venues. A building built in 1932, it was initially conceived as a cinema, but after a refurbishment completed in 2009.

It has a great classic façade, but with a modern interior.

CaixaBank Soho Theatre 

One of the most fashionable theatres in Malaga. The Soho district is characterised by its art and culture. In recent years it has achieved great recognition not only in the city but also nationally.

The Soho Theatre in Malaga is the newest and its great fame is due, in part, to the famous actor Antonio Banderas, president and promoter of the theatre.

A lively and casual looking theatre. This is one of the theatres in Malaga which, unlike the rest, is regulated by the Junta de Andalucía. The star audience of this space is children and young people, offering very didactic and educational shows.

It is divided into three spaces; the main hall with 370 seats, hall B with 50 seats and the Gades hall with 234 seats.

The Cochera Cabaret

It is perhaps the most unknown space of all, even for many locals. La Cochera Cabaret in Malaga is a multidisciplinary space and one of the theatres in Malaga with room for all kinds of theatrical performances and artists.

The idea of this space was born out of the desire to combine art with entertainment. Due to its great success, it ended up setting up a hall where the artists could be more welcome.

It has a full capacity of 250 seats and although we cannot give an exact number, we can say that it is quite cheap.
