This could have been the Mesa’s predecessor, or not.

“The Princess theater at La Junta has been leased by E. M. Role, who will conduct it as a five-cent theater.” – Motography, April 1911

On second thought, this note from the Sept. 7, 1935 Motion Picture Daily sounds more like the birth of the Mesa, since the seating number is close:

“La Junta, Col., Sept. 6. — A new theatre remodeled from a store building will be opened here Sept. 15 with Crawford Brothers of Oklahoma as operators. It will seat 450. Fox has two houses here, but one of them is closed.”

A note in the Sept. 23, 1935 Motion Picture Daily said that the Fox was reseating the Elk in La Junta, and it was to reopen soon.
