After its transfer from Alicante to Orihuela, the Teatro Circo began its activity in early 1907, the building being definitively inaugurated on April 25, 1908. The electrical installation was carried out by the famous Isaac Peral and in 1929 the works began to equip it with a cinematographic projector.
The Circo Theater building is one of the few remaining examples of the French Circus Theater typology in Europe. After a long period in which its activity ceased and was abandoned, it was restored in the 1990s by Antonio Canales Fernández from Oriolano and Clemente Ortiz from Bigastre, and was officially inaugurated on November 6, 1995 by Her Majesty Queen Sofía.
