Went to a comedy show here, we had balcony seats, but the theater is small so it was perfect. It is a more intimate setting.

A well restored theatre with a good variety of performers. My favorite is the Missoula Childrens Theatre every July. The children give amazing performances with 5 days rehersals under the direction of very talented people from the company.

A real treasure on our Main St in Downtown Las Cruces. The Dona Ana Arts Council keep this place active with great FUN events. So affordable and makes you want to spend time on Main St in downtown Las Cruces. Always check out what is going on monthly.

Historic more than outstanding venue. Average sound, fair seats and small size. Most venues do not have reserved seats which is a negative as well.

Lots of events are held here, mostly requiring an entry fee. We went to the film about the survivors of the Bataan Death March, who then had to go onto the Hell Ships. It was very moving.

So much fun and nostalgia here. I can honestly say that we have loved every performance we have attended which totals a dozen or so. Wish they could sell wine during intermission .....but you can't have everything. Easy parking or walk to location. We'll be back
