Calle Coliseo
Reseña Histórica
En el barrio seco conocido antiguamente como cerro de “Buenavista”, había la segunda mitad del siglo XIX un teatro, el cual tenía entre otros accesos un camino que; a modo de calle, partía de la Plaza Independencia.

En 1910, al entrar en funciones el recién construido edificio del Banco del Estado de México (casa de los Jiménez), esta vieja calle es nivelada y acondicionada para dar mejor aspecto al lugar.

Ha ostentado entre otros nombres, los de Martínez Vaca y Muñoz Vela, en honor a diferentes jefes políticos.

En el teatro del pueblo, lo mismo presentaban festivales artísticas que peleas de gallos, actos circences o cívicos y funciones de cinematógrafo por lo que esta calle era muy concurrida.

El nombre de Calle Coliseo, lo toma del último nombre del teatro (Montes de Oca, Variedades, Coliseo), el cual fue destruido por un incendio en la década de los 40’s de este siglo XX

of the 19th century. It had, among other accesses, a path that started from the Plaza Independencia.

In 1910, when the recently built building of the Bank of the State of Mexico (the House of Jiménez) began to be used, this old street was leveled and conditioned to improve the appearance of this area.

It has held, among other names, those of Martínez Vaca and Muñoz Vela, in honor of different political leaders.

In the theater on this street were presented artistic festivals, cockfights, circuses, civic functions and cinematography, causing this street to have been very busy over the years.

The name of Coliseum Street is taken from the last name of the theater (Montes de Oca, Varieties, Colosseum), which was destroyed by a fire in the 1940s.
