Located on the world-famous La Rambla, the building that houses the Poliorama Theatre was constructed in 1899 and has been operating as a theatre since 1982. The ground floor of the venue was designed by Josep Domènech i Estapà (who was also responsible for the construction of La Fabra Observatory and the building that is now the CosmoCaixa, among others), with the purpose of being the seat of the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences. The space was put to many uses over the years, but sinde the 1970s it's been given over to the performing arts, and is one of the most popular theatres in the city. Programming includes theatre plays, flamenco shows, concerts, and performances for families and kids.
