Casa Linda Theatre to be transformed into a grocery store
EAST DALLAS, TX – Although many have hoped for over a decade that the Casa Linda Theatre would return as a movie house, its destiny now appears to be a conversion to a natural foods market. The transition is expected to happen by the middle of April.
“Everybody I talk to is disappointed it could not be turned back into a theater,” Morgan said Thursday afternoon. “But a natural grocery store will be a boon to the neighborhood.”
The last serious effort to resurrect the theater came in 2006 when the Austin-based Alamo Drafthouse, which employs the restaurant-combined-with-movie concept, tried to put a deal together for the property.
