TESTIMONIALS

 

"You can just sense the old film

projector and the movies still

being shown, as if time stands still. "

 

 

 

"A classic ~ you don't get this

type of atmosphere in any theater

of this day and age. A nostalgic

experience you can't get enough of."

 

 

 

"So grateful to those who keep this town alive through all the natural

devastation — the history and experience is so important for

the generations to come.

Bless you, in your continued efforts."

MOGOLLON THEATER

 

The theater is located in the middle of town, a short distance and across the street from the Mogollon Museum.

 

The Mogollon Theater was once known as The Midway, and was reported to be the oldest "intact" movie house in New Mexico. It was built around the turn of the century by mill owner Harry Herman for Syl Gambin.

A saloon and general store (below left) were built as part of the movie set. As well, in 2013 the devastating flooding took the saloon building that was once adjacent to the general store.

With the devastating flooding in 2013, the theater has been under construction to restore the projection booth (right)  to its original glory.
