Fodor's Expert Review Rio Grande

Las Cruces Arts Centers

A rare two-story adobe theater, the Rio Grande was restored and refurbished inside and out in 2005. This 1926 vintage movie house now functions as performing-arts space. Note the spritely colored blue-and-green bas-relief trim on the brick-, tile-, and stucco Italian Renaissance facade; the classically incised tin ceiling; and the bright-red neon sign. With 422 seats—including a balcony—it's just the right size for the film series, spoken word, and live music events it currently hosts.
