I keep reading that this theatre only ran American independent films for that one brief year in 1965, but other data shows they ran this style of programming into the 70’s. see this D Magazine listing for “New American Cinema” from 1975 http://www.dmagazine.com/publications/d-magazine/1975/january/keeping-up-a-select-guide-to-entertainment-in-dallas

this was indeed the best theater in Dallas during the 80’s and 90’s in terms of presentation. Were making some strides down in Oak Cliff to try and get close! www.thetexastheatre.com

looks like it was demolished very recently. A Grocery store nearby seems to be taking over the lot.

how come the AMC Prestonwood, the GC Prestonwood and the GC Galleria aren’t on Cinema Treasures? (or if they are, I cant find them!) I think of all 4 of theses theaters together cause they were in the same booking district.
