Chamber To Celebrate Grand Opening Of SALA Los Alamos Event Center


New Los Alamos business SALA Los Alamos Event  Center is officially opening on Thursday, December 1 with much excitement! Help celebrate  SALA’s opening in the former Reel Deal Theater at 2551 Central Avenue, with a Ribbon Cutting  ceremony and many other activities on Thursday, December 1, 4:00 – 9:00 PM. 

Allan Saenz announced the purchase of the Reel Deal building in August. Saenz and co-owner  Sammi Owens started an LLC called LA Angels Investment Co to buy the building. The SALA Los  Alamos Events Center will keep its former use while also making some changes.
