My father was Benny Walker and all 6 of his children along with our mother owned and operated the theater from 1969 until it’s closing in the late 80’s. It did in fact have a upper section and did have over 1300 seats. At the end of its era we did run Spanish features because a new 4 plex was built in town and the English was shown there. I have nothing but fond memories of growing up in the grand old theater and still own a mirror that hung in the ladies sitting area. I do have a drawing of the theater and when I get it scanned with gladly put it up on this sight.
