Fountain Theater, Mesilla, New Mexico

Off the historic Mesilla Plaza in Mesilla, New Mexico sits the historic Fountain Theater, built in 1905. Records indicate that this adobe structure is probably the oldest movie theater in New Mexico.

Cornerstones completed a conditions assessment of the historic Fountain Theater. The conditions assessment is the first step in the eventual preservation process. The process included a comprehensive photographic documentation and a number of tests and investigations to understand the current conditions of the building. Currently, Cornerstones is developing a preservation plan based upon the findings from the conditions assessment.
