Raton, NM  El Raton theater (# 1111)

Raton, NM El Raton theater (# 1111) 

El Raton theater in the center of downtown Raton. The theater opened in 1930 and is still in use as a movie theater. Designed at the time to be suggestive of a Medieval Spanish castle, the theater still stands out architecturally. Per photos on the source document (linked below), the marquee looks much as it did in 1936.
