Last week I introduced you to Sugar Nymphs Bistro, a very cool eatery just north of Santa Fe.  What I didn’t mention was that the restaurant shares space with the Peñasco Theatre, a vintage community theater built in 1940.  Once the original movie house for the town, it now offers the local community such creative and artistic programs as a summer theatre season and youth performance workshops based in circus arts, puppetry and dance.  The murals on the outside of the buildings are a spectacular indication of the energy and creativity that happens inside.

    Great pictures, Ellen. I can only imagine what it was like when it was in it’s prime.
