Milks4Pooter: There IS actually some people interested in doing something with the theatre although I’m not at liberty to discuss the fine details at the moment. I will just say most likely it will NOT be demolished as the people wanting to save it are fighting the city tooth and nail to be sure they keep their grubby hands off that building which holds so many memories. Just stay tuned for more updates as they warrant and are allowed to be discussed. Thank you!

Hi All! checking back in after 6yrs to see how everyone is doing. I guess there’s nothing new to report on the 25th theatre as I would’ve heard about it. It still sits abandoned and rotting away but all the memories remain that I was proud to be a part of! Hopefully one day somebody with a big heart and a bank account to match will take possession of it (before something causes its possible demise) and fix it up so everybody can enjoy it once again. I have since moved to Dallas enjoying life up here. However, if by some chance something is done to save the 25th, I’ll most definitely come down to take part in any restoration efforts offering any help I can to bring it back to life! Yall don’t give up hope and keep the faith as I have a very good feeling there’s something wonderful meant for that place in the future! Long live the 25th!!! : )

Well Rob Bob, haven’t seen you since 25th closed. Hope you’re doing ok in Florida. Sounds like you have major reservations about Jake’s ideas on restoring 25th to get her back on track. Don’t you think that would give Waco the much sought after enjoyment it’s been thirsting for? Not to mention honoring Little Richard. I think he would be very proud to see a possible comeback for the place he made “home” for lots of folks like you, me and Jake. I hope your attitude towards any attempts to pursue ideas on the theatre will drastically change. Afterall, it’s time for something good to happen for once in the face of horror at what was the Arcadia. This would be a great rebound from the historical events which shook emotions in Dallas. Well wishes to you! Julie

Mega dittos Jake! If things go the way you’re talking, wanting to possibly get something done to help the theatre, then may Little Richard’s spirit work through you to get her back on her feet! We owe it to him to at least do that much! So may the powers that be give those involved the strength to overcome negativity and have a very positive outcome that will result in many smiles and happy folks to return to a whole new perspective of the 25th!

WOW! Can’t believe it’s been 13yrs since I last stepped foot inside the 25th St Theatre! Amazing how time has flown! All the memories and fun I had there with all the wonderful people and several friends I made who always welcomed me with acceptance! Every Saturday I could be found there at 25th just dancin the night away under the awesome light show and dance tunes. Several of you might remember me as I hung around a couple of girls who were regulars there. They dressed similarly as I followed suit in the traditional gothic style of black attire and black bob hairstyle. Their names were Spyder and Paisley. I wasn’t as popular as they were but managed to befriend them somehow…and make friends with other popular folks. I think one of the only things that separated me from lots of people in there was the fact I didn’t engage in specific scrupulous activities which I am thankful for! Other than that, I participated in local sofa conversations in the girls restroom area often. Then usually, I’d hear one of my favorite songs come on like “Dance to the Beat” or “Holy Noise”…I’d be up in a flash and tear across the room just to find my way to the checkered dance floor as happy as pig in slop! And my apologies for anybody who got shoved in my path as I ripped through people like a tornado. Of course once in awhile, I’d find an empty pool table (usually at the back)if the dance floor was too crowded and make my own room on it! Sometimes I had a friend join me. Some of you might remember a certain guy who was a Saturday regular there and a good friend of mine. His name was Jon Tremont…worked for (what was)Cablevision. He used to park his red Pontiac Trans-Am around the back of the theatre next to the curb in the street (on MC’s side of 25th building). OH, can’t forget about the sweet orange cat that graced the ticket booth area with his presence where Big Richard sat to take admission. He knew how to greet everybody by putting a smile on our faces. On occasion, he’d prance around the front bar area letting us all know that animals enjoy clubbin too! Although I was underage at the time (age 16 to be exact)I went to 25th, Big Richard was kind enough to allow me entrance inside so I could enjoy myself and have a blast! There was NEVER a dull moment from the first time I stepped foot into the club to the last night I went. I’ll never forget the many pairs of shoes I wore holes in dancing under Mousey’s light show and dance tunes producing enough sweat to flood the whole entire theatre! Thanks Little Richard for all the cherished memories you helped me create. You will NEVER EVER be forgotten and your legacy will live on! If anybody would be interested in contacting me, please feel free to do so. My e-mail is: or I have some photos I took inside 25th back in 1990-91 that I will post on here soon. Hope everyone is doing well! Julie Scorza in West
