Texas Theatre opened on 25 Nov 1929 and closed in 1985,however it did reopen briefly in 1994.I discovered a website celebrating the theatre’s 75th anniversary and from the photos the auditorium looks to be in fairly good condition.

The auditorium was designed to imitate a Spanish courtyard and it had stars and floating clouds on the ceiling,so besides being Spanish Colonial it is also an atmospheric.There is a photo of the interior in the book,Lone Star Picture Shows.
