This little long-shuttered theatre is representative of the thousands of plain buff brick venues with little plain rectangular sheet metal marquees with two chains holding up each corner that dotted the American West and Southwest. Trouble is, very few are left. Here is one which has survived with no visible remodelings, probably closed for nearly forty years, boarded up, and left to decay in this tiny town on the way West toward Ely.
In 1963, the McGill was operated by the Hull Circuit. General manager was W.G. Hull, headquartered in Ely, Nevada. Other Hull theaters at the time were the Central and Ely in Ely and the Ruth in Ruth, NV.
