Legend has it that Rodriguez, an electrician who was electrocuted in the 1940s during the building of the auditorium, haunts the area by flickering the lights and turning them off and on. There are also cold spots felt near the site of his death. The ghost of a 12-year-old boy also haunts the site. It is said that he died there in the early 1960s by falling off the roof. Cold spots can sometimes be felt, and the boy’s crying can be heard.
