Officially opened on December 15th 1966, Teatro José Lúcio da Silva, named after a city charitable, is a true cultural reference of Leiria.
This hall has undergone several remodelling interventions over the years, such as the implementation of the digital sound system, new chairs, new carpeting, remodelling of the stage and lastly, the acquisition of a new machine for the projection, allowing a better image cut. Without a doubt, one of the best rooms in the country.
Teatro José Lúcio da Silva is also a founding member of m|i|mo - museum of the moving image, a museum that in 2004 joined the Portuguese Museum Network and that has in its estate a fund dedicated to the JLS Theatre.
This theatre has become throughout the years a "monumental" show room with capacity for 763 seats, presenting excellent scenic characteristics that provide a visual comfort rare nowadays in projection rooms.
