Managed by the Mesilla Valley Film Society, this is pretty much the only place in town to see independent and foreign films. In a historic adobe just off the main plaza, this little gem provides an experience you'll find nowhere else. Historic murals on the...More

The Fountain Theater is a gem in Old Mesilla. Interesting films are shown that usually don't play in large theaters. The theater is very well restored with old time seats and interesting murals on its walls. A great experience for all.

Wonderful movies. Can't wait for new seats. Tough to read subtitles with heads leveled in front of you. I feel like a bobble head sometimes! Get there early. It gets sold out. Fun to have drinks from la posta.

Cozy, with wonderful volunteers who feed you fresh food they make,(as fresh popcorn w/ REAL butter), wine and beer, table and chairs to choose from if you don't want the standard theater seating, and, best of all, wonderful films that present the world to you.....More

This was a wonderful find. We went after dinner and had a great time. It is old but inviting to view a movie. Most movies are special and not at the main movie theaters. The workers are volunteers. You can get a hot drink, popcorn,...More
