Managed by the Mesilla Valley Film Society, this is pretty much the only place in town to see independent and foreign films. In a historic adobe just off the main plaza, this little gem provides an experience you'll find nowhere else. Historic murals on the...More

The Fountain Theater is a gem in Old Mesilla. Interesting films are shown that usually don't play in large theaters. The theater is very well restored with old time seats and interesting murals on its walls. A great experience for all.

Wonderful movies. Can't wait for new seats. Tough to read subtitles with heads leveled in front of you. I feel like a bobble head sometimes! Get there early. It gets sold out. Fun to have drinks from la posta.

If you are out to see a movie on a big screen, you have many multi-screen locations around. The theater seats may be of a higher quality but the staff, film selections, concessions, atmosphere pale in comparison of the Fountain Theater in Mesilla, NM. Next...More
