2017 was a record year for two of the Algarve’s most popular theatres – Teatro das Figuras (Faro) and Cine-Teatro Louletano (Loulé).

Both venues saw audience numbers reach new heights last year, with Teatro das Figuras and Cine-Teatro Louletano welcoming over 48,000 and 30,000 people, respectively.

In Loulé, the Cine-Teatro Louletano hosted mostly concerts (46) and plays (27), although there were also seven dancing performances and 11 cinema sessions.
