The Grand Theatre PDF Print E-mail
 This majestic Beaux Arts-style theater was once considered the grand dame in the Southwest and played host to vaudeville acts and performances by the likes of Ginger Rogers, Al Jolson and the some of the period’s finest musicians and entertainers. Closed to the public in the late 1950s, the theatre has suffered significant damage, including a collapsed roof. Now, a painstaking renovation is in progress, with the goal of restoring the city’s gem to its former glory. Stand in front and imagine the glory days of vaudeville and film in this small town, which was once home to 13 movie theatres. Check out the photo gallery section for a few historic glimpses of the Grand Theatre.
