I spent one night in Gallup last summer, but unfortunately it was pouring rain, so I didn’t check out the town before leaving the next morning. I’m sorry I missed seeing this theater.

Doea anyone know what became of the 5-rank Robert Morton pipe organ that was once in this theatre? I was in Gallup a couple years ago and the exterior of the El Morro looks great!

i am researching some of the original architecture and design of the inside of this theater to aide in the restoration efforts of the city of Gallup. i am needing photos and or newspaper articles with photos of the auditorium between 1929 and 1939. specifically i am looking for an image of the pillars on the outside wall that have carved gargoyles atop them. i have searched feverishly here locally to no avail. so i am putting this shout out to the world. Little help please!

thanks in advance!
