The Madrid City Council Automaton Theatre

Mechanical Theatre. “Step right up and see for yourselves” Fairground Booth

An orchestra of automatons welcomes us. Once we are inside, we can enjoy a show distributed over ten stages full of moving mechanical figures and a highly detailed and lavish decoration, with performances ranging from Costumbrist plays to cabaret shows. The Automaton Theatre is a jewel in the crown of Madrid’s cultural heritage, a marvellous fairground attraction designed and built in the 1940s and recently restored, a historic booth that has entertained audiences in Spain and Europe in the past and that now allows us to enjoy its prodigious blend of craftsmanship and technology.
