OVERTON, TX — Closed for over four decades, the Overton Theater is being restored by Loretta and John Posey. The work is expected to take nearly two years. Original materials are being used and fixtures and details recreated.

The restoration of the theater came about after the building was bought by Loretta and John Posey as one of several building restoration projects in downtown Overton.

“We bought it because we have a heart for this community, and we’ve had a business here for well over ten years,” she said. “We wanted to do dinner and a movie and have live performances with bands, plays and if the stage is big enough, ballet.”

Looks like a very nice theater to rebuild.

I’d like to see some interior pictures including the projection booth.
