Located in the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the Lila Cockrell Theatre stands as one of the premier event venues in San Antonio. That is partially because the theater's size allows it to schedule both performing arts and mainstream events like concerts. This versatility has made the Lila Cockrell Theatre one of the most popular places in town, as it allows patrons to catch a ballet and rock concert in the same month. The theater's proximity to the convention center and the bars and restaurants of Downtown San Antonio provide just further proof that the Lila Cockrell Theatre is a wholly unique venue.
The Lila Cockrell Theatre was built in 1968 as a part of the San Antonio World's Fair and contains a total of 2,319 seats. Because of the theater's location adjacent to the convention center, it is often used for presentations and lecturers that won't fit in the center's halls. The theater is equipped with the finest audio visual equipment to accommodate these presentations, and also come in handy for the regular events the Lila Cockrell Theatre schedules. Ticket holders for opera, ballet, symphony, and theater events have found the theater's lavish design to enhance the many performing arts events that take place in the venue. Concert goers will enjoy the spacious auditorium and high caliber performers that come to the Lila Cockrell Theatre, and relish the chance to see a show here.
