Opened June 24, 1931 with Warner Baxter & Janet Gaynor in “Daddy Long Legs” plus a stage show. With 1,000 seats, this Atmospheric style stunner served Santa Fe for 68 years as a movie house that also showcased music and live theatre. It was designed by Robert O. Boller of the Boller Brothers architectural firm. Some remodeling work was carried out in the late-1940’s by architectural firm Brittelle, Ginner & Neuner. Closed in 1999, the Lensic Theatre recieved a $8.2 million restoration after a successful fund raising effort led by Ms. Nancy Zeckendorf of Santa Fe, who serves as Chair of the Board.
Known since 2001, as the Lensic Performing Arts Center, the theatre is a gathering place for the famous artistic community as well as a venue for music, theatre, film, and more.
