- Mar 30, 2011 — Mulkey Theatre may be reborn
The Cozy Theatre was destroyed by a fire and was rebuilt, reopening as the Mulkey Theatre on February 13, 1946. It was named after Homer Mulkey, a pioneer photographer based in Clarendon. It was closed in 1986. When I last saw the Mulkey Theatre in 1988 it stood closed and lonely. It had a wonderful double sided marquee that extended out from the building and and formed a point. On top of the marquee “Mulkey” was spelled out in individual dark red letters that were outlined with neon tubing. The front of the building had pink and red tile.
It was purchased by Clarendon ECD in 2008 and work began on a $1million restoration. It reopened on May 25, 2019 with John Wayne & Claudette Colbert in “Without Reservations”(1946) and the South Plains Jazz Orchestra from Levelland playing tunes from the 1940’s on the stage.
