Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The acoustically magical and historically rich downtown theater is available for your next event. Concerts, recitals, receptions, corporate meetings, name it.

The Totah theatre opened its doors for the first time on May 4th, 1948 with the film, The Paleface, starring Bob Hope. It later became known as the "Home of the Action Pictures," featuring Bruce Lee/Kung Fu movies, and Clint Eastwood classics. The Totah was the second of a dozen movie houses the Allen Family built and managed in Farmington. Until the Civic Center opened, the Totah was home to the Community Concert Association. The Totah closed as a movie house in 1982, then reopened briefly in the early 1990s as the home of the San Juan Stage Co., a local drama troupe that is no longer in existence.

The theater was purchased from Allen Theaters, renovated, and reopened its doors in 2004. Built in the "pueblo-deco" style, the Totah is unique in design and name. The Totah has outstanding acoustics coupled with vast new stage accommodations. The renovated venue has a capacity of 300 with 100 new dinner-style seats and 200 normal theater-style seats.

The Talent

Over the last several decades, the Totah has hosted entertainment greats like John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood, and Julie Andrews. OK... those performers were on-screen when the Totah was a bustling movie theater.
