The Texas Theatre is a very good place to see new releases as well as independent films! The bar is wonderful and you truly are stepping back in time when you walk in the door!

So glad the Texas Theatre still exists. Step in and step back in time. Always a unique movie lineup, which is as it should be. One screen and it's big. Theatre constructed of solid concrete to make it fireproof (good to know!). Bar in the...More

I went here for an event. I read it was restored and it was restored to its retro splendor. The outside was not very welcoming without someone standing in the booth. The theater was nice and clean. The concession stand had fresh popcorn and snacks....More

This was an awesome experience to travel through history. Our guide Mary Katherine was a delight and gave us a tour which covered the entire history of this iconic landmark. From the projection booth to the seat where Oswald was captured, she covered it all....More
