Not much here to see but the outside of the theatre and it is off the beaten path. It is closed down due to COVID I guess. Was disappointed but neat to see the location where Oswald was arrested.

We love the Texas theater for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the eclectic and creative choice of films they choose to offer, but also the inviting atmosphere of the place. There is a strange, almost anachronistic feeling about the theater. Maybe it's the building itself. Built in 1931 by Howard Hughes, the layout and architecture makes you feel like you are walking back in time to a smaller, more intimate world. To me, a senior who remembers attending Saturday afternoon matinees at similar theaters back in the fifties, there is a nostalgic flashback every time I enter the place. The lobby bar is usually packed on weekends with an eccentric mix of artists, millenials, goths, gays, geezers and goddesses all fully engaged with one another as if they were at a house party in Soho. We always have fun when we visit. You will to. Worth the drive.

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!

This past holiday weekend, my family and I got tickets to see Potted Potter (a Harry Potter parody show) at the Texas Theatre! It was my first time visiting. The show was great, and I loved the theater itself. It's been renovated but without removing all the historic charm from this old theater (when the theater opened in 1931, it was the third largest theater in Dallas). It has a small bar and a small concessions area and is just very, very charming. (They also have a parking lot just one block from the theater). If I still lived in Dallas, I'd be back soon to take in an old, restored movie at the theater for sure. I can't wait to go back when I visit Dallas in 2019.
