El Morro Theatre and Events Center
207 W Coal Avenue Gallup, NM 87301

The historic El Morro Theatre in Gallup, New Mexico, is a movie theatre and performing arts center.  Designed by noted theater architect Car Boller, the facility opened in 1928 as a "castle of pleasure and art." It shares a common heritage with the KiMo Theatre in Albuquerque and the Lensic Theatre in Santa Fe, both being Boller-designed theaters.  Today the 430-seat theatre is used for second run film exhibition and live performing arts events.  

The attached events center has a capacity of 120 and is perfect for meetings and parties.  The events center was built and opened in 2015.
