Remembering the El Sol and Gila Theater!

The Gila and El Sol movie theater were probably the most awesome spots for catching a flick in Silver City. I actually had the opportunity to watch a few movies at the El Sol, before it closed in 2002 or was it 2003? The last movie that I saw at the El Sol was Scary Movie 2 in the summer of 2001. Every time I watched a movie at El Sol, I would always sit in the balcony. To watch a movie in a theater that was sixty years old really gave me a sense of nostalgia. The El Sol and Gila theater were Silver's original time machines. Eventually the El Sol and Gila closed their doors to the public in 2003. The reason for the closing of these two great little theaters might have been a lack of attendance. Why the Real West Cinema is still open is beyond my comprehension. It would be great if someone could invest a couple of hundred thousand into these theaters. You will most definitely find me in a line waiting to buy a ticket, if they decide to reopen these vintage theaters. If they cannot reopen these theaters, then I will find a way to build an all new movie theater in Silver City.
