Our mission is to bring the surrounding Gallup communities together to be entertained by the films that made us fall in love with “The Movies.” At the same time, we are embracing the independent lens of today’s thought-provoking and game-changing filmmakers from across the country and around the globe. We invite you to join us as we share in a one-of-a-kind experience, the power of watching timeless stories told on the silver screen.
