The Foro Cultural Azcapotzalco opened originally as the Teatro “Virginia Fábregas” in 1950. That was the year that beloved stage and screen actress Fábregas died.
The theater was renamed the Foro Cultural Azcapotzalco in 1978 to better serve the communities of the surrounding area. Since then it’s been one of the City’s premier perfomance venues. They present between 300 and 400 performances every year.
The façade was painted by Iseo Noyola. He’s probably best known for the mural work completed on the façade of the Museo de Azcapotzalco.
