Teatro "Francisco de Paula Toro"Este teatro fue construido gracias al entusiasmo de un
grupo de vecinos, quienes encomendaron al ingeniero Teodoro Journot la supervisión de la construcción. Se
inauguró el 15 de septiembre de 1834 con el nombre de "Coliseo"; después se llamó "Toro" y finalmente "Francisco de Paula Toro", nombre de su promotor. Aquí se estrenó el himno campechano el 16 de septiembre de 1899, y fue escenario de representaciones operísticas, teatrales y bailes de carnaval. En el siglo XX siguió empleándose para actividades culturales, pero su uso más común fue de cine donde se proyectaban las películas más importantes de séptimo arte. En 1987 fue adquirido por el Gobierno del Estado y en 1990, después de una restauración concebida como parte de los festejos del 450 aniversario de la fundación de Campeche, se convirtió en Teatro de la Ciudad.English:"Francisco de Paula Toro" TheaterThis theater was built thanks to the enthusiasm of a group of neighbors who commissioned engineer Teodoro Journot to supervise construction.
