Street Scene - 107 S. El Paso Street, El Paso, TX 79901

The Ellanay Theater dates back to at least 1918 when a Wurlitzer theater organ was installed. In 1957 the Ellanay Theater was operated by the Trans-Texas Theatres chain. Later renamed Capri Theater, it was showing movies at least through to 1966. Eventually the building became a clothing store which closed in 1983, and the building was subsequently demolished.
