As noted here, the just restored Rio Grande Theatre was designed by Otto H. Thorman, an El Paso architech.
That was not his only theatre project. He also designed the Mission Theatre in El Paso.
The theatre, at 3031 Alameda, was built in 1940 for the El Paso Amusement Company. It is now a bar.
The Spanish mission theme is obvious. The bell is still in the bell space.
