The Comet Theatre was mentioned in The Deming Headlight in 1912, 1913, and 1914. An item from May 1, 1914, says that Thomas Hull, manager of the Comet and Crystal Theatres, was building an Airdome on Silver Avenue. He had ordered new seats for the Comet, and would move the old seats to the new Airdome.

117 S. Silver Avenue today is a shop the name of which can’t be identified in Street View, but this web page about Camp Cody, the WWI Army training facility near Deming, says that the Comet Theatre was at 115 S. Silver. That lot is currently occupied by a Victory Outreach chapel called The House of Miracles. The front looks to be fairly modern masonry, but it might be an old building lurking behind an updated facade. If the Camp Cody page is correct, the Comet might still be standing and used as a church.
