To note: Western Auto had the end section of the building then later moving into the Palace Theatre section, giving Western Auto more room……

This was known originally as The Star Theatre, a silent movie theatre.. Later becoming known as The Palace Theatre. Today, Western Auto took over the building. The Palace has been closed at least some 55-60+ years. RAC Photography – The above capture, I took back in Dec 2010!!

Hmm. Showmen’s Trade Review, March 28, 1942: “Lordsburg, N. M. — Work has been started on the Palace Theatre being built here by Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Allen, who also operate a theatre in Hatch, N. M.”
