This historic theater was built as a municipal theater in order to alleviate Arecibo’s need for theatrical space as well as a place to hold town meetings and other types of gatherings. The theater was built in the historic district of urban Arecibo in 1877. Many years after the theater opened its doors to Arecibo’s inhabitants it was converted into a movie theater.
The theaters owners decided to renovate the theater and give it a more modern look. In 2001 the municipality of Arecibo realized that they needed space for the performing arts and ironically instead of building a performing arts center they opted to restore the Oliver to its beautiful original neoclassical facade. The Oliver remains open as Arecibo’s municipal theater.
