Palestine Community Theatre -- Texas Theatre (Official)
Architects: W. Scott Dunne
Functions: Live Performances
The Texas Theatre opened in 1921 on Crawford Street, primarily as a vaudeville house. It was designed in a Spanish Colonial style. In 1930 it was remodeled in an Atmospheric / Italian Renaissance style by architect W. Scott Dunne. From the 1940’s into the 1960’s, the Texas Theatre served as a movie house. In the 1980’s, the theatre reopened as a live theatre, but closed in 1997.
After many years' restoration work (which is still to be completed, including its auditorium’s ceiling, the marquee and carpeting), the Texas Theatre is now reopened, presenting live entertainment from the Palestine Community Theater which operates the theatre. The theatre’s “Texas” vertical sign has been restored and relit.
