New Mexico rehabilitates aging, historic theaters

Entertainment hubs seen as opportunity for economic boost
The newly refurbished Shuler Theater in downtown Raton, N.M., is one of many theaters in rural New Mexico towns being revitalized as part of a state initiative. The economic development program, similar to efforts in Iowa and Illinois, seeks to save the often-forgotten theaters in small cities and towns with help on refurbishing buildings and grants for new digital projection and sound equipment.
The 101-year-old Shuler Theater attracts audiences from as far away as Trinidad, Colorado.
