Built in 1941, El Rey Theater has not only undergone multiple changes—both in terms of construction and usage—but has also been re-christened several times. With a plethora of shows performed, year in and out, this theater has now got a strong foothold in the entertainment circuit of Albuquerque. History of this place is another reason for its popularity among the locals. Be it a play or a musical concert, this theater promises a surreal experience. Although, it does not halt at that—for any special occasion, this place is available on rental basis. You can have a perfect wedding or a convention at this venue, where the blockbuster 21 Grams was filmed.
