The El Morro Theatre is a historic building in Gallup, New Mexico. Most of the theatre’s original exterior remains have been replaced to keep the façade intact and have been used as a backdrop for many Native American Ceremonial parades. Parts of the interior no longer exist, such as the original artwork that has been painted over. However, many detailed historical documents remind us of what they once looked like. The organ was taken out in the 1950s and the crying room attached to the women’s restroom no longer exists. However, the El Morro Theatre is still a fantastic option to watch a movie.
