The Shuler Theater opened on April 27, 1915 in downtown Raton, and was designed by architects Issac H. Rapp & William Rapp. It was built for Dr. James Jackson Shuler, an early 20th century Raton mayor. It was originally called the Shuler Auditorium and presented opera, legitimate theater, concerts and other forms of live entertainment. Later, the Shuler Theater became a movie house but by the 1950’s had closed down.

Early in the 1960’s, the legitimate Kaleidoscope Players used the Shuler Theater for their productions, and restoration of the theater began. Today, the Shuler Theater is still used for live theater and other peforming arts.

Much more information on this theater can be found at the Shuler’s website below.
