New owners take charge of theater

RATON, NM — There are new owners for the El Raton Theatre that hope to pour some money into it and keep it going.

When Kerry Medina last August began checking out the El Raton – the downtown Raton movie theater had been put up for sale – he found out the 78-year-old building needed a lot of work, but he also “thought it would be a pretty neat business to own.”

On Thursday, Medina and his wife Kristie, along with their friends – and now business partners – Ted and Traci Kamp and Neil and Donna Emiro, became the new owners of the historic El Raton. All of the new owners are from Raton.

I wish them luck. Anytime someone can attempt to save another treasure, they get credit. I hope it works out.
