Guild Cinema - November, 2010 at Night

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Guild Art Theatre opened February 16, 1966, in a building that had originally opened a few years earlier as a short-lived store. The tiny, 150 seat house was originally screened adult movies.

From 1971-77, the Guild Theatre was a revival theatre, but when the Guild’s owner acquired another art house nearby (the Don Pancho Theatre), the Guild Theatre was shuttered. It reopened in 1979, showing art and foreign fare, until 1988, when it closed again. The Guild Theatre reopened a few months later, remaining open until 1998, when it closed again briefly before reopening once more under new ownership.

The theatre was sold to new owners in 2004, who continue the Guild Theatre’s art house tradition. Today, the Guild Cinema is the only remaining independent art house in the Albuquerque area.
