Rio Grande Theatre to close for renovations.

The historic Rio Grande Theatre in downtown Las Cruces will be closing for six weeks this winter while it undergoes a series of repairs and upgrades. The theatre will be closed to the public December 18, 2017 through January 31, 2018. It will reopen on February 1, 2018.

In addition to minor repairs to the stage and interior theatre walls, the floor in the lobby will be leveled and re-carpeted. The concession area will also be upgraded with new serving and storage areas. Upstairs in the balcony, handrails will be added for additional safety.

Due to the length of the closure, the Classic Film Series movie Casablanca scheduled for January 13, 2018, has been moved to May 26, 2018. Additionally, the kid’s matinee showing of Alice in Wonderland has been moved to noon on May 26, 2018.
