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. In 2015, the city dedicated the El Morro Events Center, a multi-purpose meeting facility that is connected to the historic theater. In addition, in the last several years the theatre has received new seating, restrooms, a new Dolby Digital 7.1 Sound System, and a high end Christie Digital Projector, aisle lights, new curtains, new balcony railings and more to make your movie going experience top notch.
