“Restored old adobe theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

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. The film maker and narrator were both there to answer questions. A few family members of the very few survivors of the whole ordeal were there, too. The interior of the theater is nicely restored, as are the lobbies. They have a very nice and adequately sized ladies restroom. I believe that way upstairs are the offices of the Dona Ana Arts Council.

“Good acoustic, charming building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Came to a Santa Fe Opera apprentice performance. They saw without mikes and with only a piano. Sound was fantastic.

“Really charming, wish they could sell wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

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
