Stage theater -- and other types of live theatrical performance -- in Mazatlan has long been dominated by the Angela Peralta Theater (Teatro Ángela Peralta), which is not only one of Mexico's theater gems, but is one of the most spectacular restored 1800s theaters anywhere in the world.

In addition to the plays, dance and musical performances presented at the Angela Peralta, The Pearl of The Pacific also offers two other venues where you can enjoy beautifully staged live theatrical performances: the Antonio Haas Theater just off the Malecon at the Fisherman's Monument (sometimes referred to as the IMSS Theater) and the delightful Casa Haas right in the Centro Historico.

Mazatlan also has a number of theater, dance and concert festivals that take place throughout the year.

With a history dating from its opening in 1874, this magnificent 800 seat performance space has hosted the most important performers who have graced Mazatlan stages.

The theater is now part of the Mazatlan Municipal Center for the Arts which features art galleries and an internationally-acclaimed fine arts school that are important cultural resources not only for Mazatlan but for Sinaloa State and all of Mexico.

E.P.D.M. dance performance Angela Peralta Theater Teatro Ángela PeraltaThe theater is also home to the internationally acclaimed dance company Delfos Danza Contemporanea and their dance academy E.P.D.M.

Founded in 1992 by dancer-choreographers Claudia Lavista and Victor Manuel Ruiz, the company is a unique collective of artists whose repertory reflects a creative vision is characterized by energetic fluid physicality and poetic sensibilities.

Delfos’ work has been presented throughout Mexico as well as in a very large number of other countries including the United States where it has received support and recognition by -- among many others -- the National Endowment for the Arts.

For just a tiny taste of just how sophisticated the dance and staging of a Delfos Danza Contemporanea performance at the Teatro Angela Peralta can be just play the video below.

Mazatlan Movie Theater DirectoryThere are a substantial number of modern multi-screen movie theaters in Mazatlan.

The multiplex theaters listed below show a wide range of internationally popular English language films, as well as Spanish language films made in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America or Spain.

In many cases English language films are shown with English audio and Spanish subtitles but -- if you don't like overdubbing -- it's always good to check before you buy your ticket!

Schedules of films currently showing at movie theaters in Mazatlan can be viewed on the film listings part of all of the cinemas' websites.

For Americans and Canadians used to high movie theater ticket prices, going to see a film at a Mazatlan multiplex is like rolling your life-film back to the 1970s: tickets are about 3 dollars and those prices are mirrored in the prices of the movie-house food.

It gets even better: there are discount tickets on the Mazatlan movie theater websites if you buy a number of anytime-use tickets at once!

A Note about Mexican Movie Theater Food: Many Mexicans take their film-food dining quite seriously, and there are sinfully fun full-blown super high-calorie theater food meals served on trays that can be bought at most Mazatlan movie theaters! Bien Provecho!

DVD and video rental and purchase

Renting movies in MazatlanWant to rent a movie in Mazatlan? If so, the location where you will probably find the DVD you want will be very familiar: Blockbuster.

While brick-and-mortar film rental may be in decline in the United States and Canada because of Netflix (which has a substantial presence in Mazatlan and throughout Mexico) and other streaming media services, the traditional video store continues to thrive in the Pearl of The Pacific.

There are certainly many Mexican video stores in Mazatlan, but most will probably disappoint American and Canadian visitors. While some are large, they are often packed with very large numbers of the same DVD titles -- making for a limited selection no matter how large the store may be -- and sometimes carry English language films dubbed into Spanish, which is pretty unsatisfying to most native English speakers.

The two Mazatlan Blockbuster stores, on the other hand, carry virtually all of their English language films with English audio, and offer a far wider selection of classic English language cinema DVDs.

Blockbuster
Info about DVD / video rental and purchase in Mazatlan

The largest Blockbuster Video in Mazatlan is just inland from Valentino's on Camarón Sábalo. It is a substantial store, with a fairly wide selection of movies on DVD to choose from, including a good selection of foreign and art films.

There is also a smaller Blockbuster located on Insurgentes beside the Soriana supermarket, which also carries many foreign movie titles and classic Hollywood cinema.

While it is unlikely -- but not impossible -- that your Blockbuster sales person will speak fluent English, both Blockbusters are friendly places to rent movies, and issue membership cards to tourists and seasonal visitors with reasonable identification.

Both Blockbusters are open every day; have secure off-street parking; 24-hour drop boxes, accept credit cards, sell used and new DVDs and video games, and offer a wide and deep selection of movie-time junk food.
