Mesa Theatre
Clovis, NM
2012: 2017:
The Mesa Theatre was built in 1925. After a devastating fire, it was rebuilt in 1948. The building is currently vacant. However, in 2013, there were plans to turn it into a performing arts venue. The zia symbol has been removed from the facade. I assume it will be replaced once restoration work is done since it was part of the original design. For more, see this website. [map]
