 Teatro José Rubén Romero(Capilla Doméstica Jesuita)Este inmueble funcionó como casa de ejercicios y capilla doméstica de los jesuitas hasta 1767, fecha en que la Compañía de Jesús fue expulsada de la entonces Nueva España. En 1824 la capilla pasó a manos del clero secular y las carmelitas descalzas también conocidas como teresianas se establecieron aquí. Fue en 1849 cuando las
monjas habían considerado la construcción del que sería su nuevo claustro, sin embargo, no llegó a ser construido en consecuencia de su expulsión motivada por las Leyes de Reforma. Posteriormente este edificio tuvo
diversas funciones, fue cárcel de mujeres y en varias ocasiones funciónó como cuartel. En 1966 el Gobierno del Estado rescató el deteriorado inmueble y en este proceso fueron modificadas las fachadas y las
antiguas bardas que delimitaban el recinto. La nave de capilla se adaptó como teatro, donde aún se puede admirar el magnífico trabajo de cantería de la bóveda. Los espacios anexos fueron reacondicionados como oficinas al servicio de la Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo.

translation:
José Rubén Romero Theater(Former Jesuit Domestic Theather)This plot of real estate functioned as a house for religious exercises and as the domestic chapel of the Jesuits until 1767, on which date the Companion of Jesus was expelled from what was the New Spain. In 1824, the chapel became controlled by the secular clergy and the barefoot Carmelite nuns - also known as Teresians - established themselves there. It was in 1849 that the nuns began the construction of what would be their new cloister, which was never finished as a consequence of their expulsion due to the Reform laws ("Leyes de Reforma"). Afterwards this building had various functions; it was a women's prison and on several occasions it served as an army headquarters. In 1966 the state Government restored the deteriorated property and in this process the acade and the ancient fences, which delimited the enclosure
were modified. The chapel nave or aisle was adopted as a theater, where it is still possible to admire the magnificent masonry work of the vault. The atached spaces were reconditioned as offices at the service of the Michoacán University of San Nicolás de Hidalgo ("Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo).
