Life Theater...Huntsville Texas

Not listed in 1941, the Life Theater was operating by 1943 and continued until at least 1970. In the early to mid-1970’s it was known as the Cine.

This address doesn’t map out.

An item in the April 6, 1940, issue of Boxoffice might be about the Life Theatre. It says that Sam Parrish, operator of the local Avon and Dorothy theatres, was planning a new, 800-seat house across the street from the Avon. I can’t find anything about the opening of this unnamed house, but several later issues of Boxoffice mention Sam Parrish as the owner of the Life Theatre.

The Life Theatre is mentioned in Boxoffice as late as 1970, when new owners were planning a renovation.

Try 1214 Sam Houston Avenue. This street was apparently renamed at some point, since the next street over is Avenue M.

The antique mall would be around 1214:

Santa: The Town Theatre was a different house, and has its own Cinema Treasures page here.

This theater was also called the Cine. I lived in Huntsville from 1972-75 and went to the Cine then.
