1) I would love to know where you found the postcard of the theater. It’s beautiful and I’ve never seen a copy of it.
2) Jake, the board hasn’t got the money it will take to renovate the 25th Street. Unfortunately, this theater is probably going to see the wrecking ball. I work for the City of Waco and the things I’ve heard is for awhile it was repairable, but really would take several millions to now restore.
3) I am now working on a project concerning the life of Mary Holliday, host of the Kiddie’s matinee that was performed at the Waco Theater in the 30’s and 40’s. If you know anyone who performed, sang, worked or went to the matinees, please have them contact me at
Once the photo spot is renovated, I will post pictures of the Crystal, the Rivoli and the Orpheum. I found some of these when I was doing my research on the Hippodrome.—Jenn
