96th Annual Indian Ceremonial and Historic El Morro Theatre


The historic El Morro Theatre in Gallup, New Mexico is a community cinema and performing arts center.

Designed by noted theater architect Carl Boller, the facility opened in 1928 as a “castle of pleasure and art.” It shares a common heritage with the KiMo Theater in Albuquerque and the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, both also being Boller-designed theaters.

Today, the 460-seat theater is used for film exhibition and performing arts. The building is the only example of Spanish Colonial Baroque Architecture in western New Mexico. In 2015, the city dedicated the El Morro Events Center, a multi-purpose meeting facility that is connected to the historic theater.
