Great quirky and relatively small venue. We've heard some great blues and gypsy jazz here on Wednesdays. Tempted to go to the Open Mike on Tuesdays. Friendly people. All seats are good. Kick back. Have some popcorn and listen to some great music.

Every time we are in San Miguel we make sure to attend The Shelter Theater Open Mic on Tuesday nights. The theater itself is small and intimate with comfy seats. The entry fee of 50 pesos gets you a drink and popcorn is also available. The open mic is always good with a variety of performers- poetry, dance, music and more... Often professional acts will stop by with a few numbers to advertise their upcoming shows at the Shelter or around town. There is an intermission midway to stretch and chat. They will call you a cab after but it is not a big walk to Centro. Performers come earlier to sign up. Audiences are very encouraging and first timers are welcome. If you are taking a cab there tell the cab driver Teatro Shelter San Raphael and they will know where to go.

Thanks so much for your support, Brenda! We're happy to be San Miguel's "Cheers Bar" and are proud to be the place both amateur and professional entertainers in San Miguel try out their new material. You never know what you'll find at Open Mic so we hope you keep coming back to support our local artists!

I love this wonderful theatre. They are very thoughtful in selecting films , live music, open mic nights. David is the man who brings it all together especially with his q & a after films.. he makes you feel you are a guest in his living room.

All sorts of different things going on from movies, plays, open mike night and improv. Groovy owners and beer and wine served along with the popcorn. A FUN PLACE.
